WSUS - Patching over the weekend

By cttechguy72 ·
Workstation updates at my current job have always been done during the weekday during normal businees hours. Usually on friday mornings. Lately some users complained that this is kind of a bother so I recommanded that the updates take place over the weeekend. I would monitor them from home. If the workstatiions are on but not logged in can updates still be installed or do the users need to be logged in? can the settings in the GPO allow me to push updates to the workstations with them just being turned on ? I did some testing and it didnt work.

Any suggestions would be great

you can have WSUS automatically install critical updates when where and how. I usually have it set to do so when the user turns off the comp or logs off.

See WSUS documentation.

I use magic packet in case users turn off their comps and I have to wake em up.
