Windows Updates on W2K Prof. clients

By itsamadworld ·
We are converting our users from W98 to W2000 Professional. We have a W2K server, and approximately 150 users connected via TCP/IP. Our users cannot download any software; therefore, they are not able to download MS Critical Updates. We've understood that we can "push" these updates to these computers. If this can be done, what's best way?
Thanks

Windows Updates on W2K Prof. clients

Yup. Software Update Services:

"Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS) is designed to greatly simplify the process of keeping Windows-based systems up-to-date with the latest critical updates. SUS enables administrators to quickly and reliably deploy critical updates to their Windows 2000-based servers as well as desktop computers running Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional."

Here is the home page for it:

Before deployment, it would be a good idea to slipstream SP3 into 2k. Cuts WAY down on NIMDA infections. SUS is the way to go.

Good luck!
