Remote updates for other computers.
I'm trying to setup a .bat file / script so that I can get Windows
Updates to:
1.) check for new updates,
2.) download the update(s)
3.) install the update(s)
4.) reboot (only if needed) after normal working hours (would love to
schedule around 5am).
5.) Update status to the WSUS after the reboot.

I need this to run so that there would be NO user input.

Any Ideas??

For the Windows Update parts you could base it on my script:

<http://www.scms.waikato.ac.nz/~harry/wsusupdate.vbs>

http://www.scms.waikato.ac.nz/~harry/wsusupdate.vbs

You can schedule scripts to run at a given time of day using the AT command, but
you should add a random delay at the start of the script so they don't all
contact the server at the same time.

I believe the Windows Update Agent will update the status after the reboot
automatically. If it doesn't seem to be working, you could add "wuauclt
/detectnow" as a startup script.

Harry.

You have just described exactly what the Windows Update client does if you set
it to download the updates and install at 5am. Why do you need a script to
duplicate the existing functionality.
