Deploying Microsoft Updates

    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about deploying
    updates throughout a network. I would like to be able to
    download windows updates to one machine, then distribute
    all the updates to the rest of the machines in my network
    from that machine. Or at least have the machines on my
    network look at the one machine and download them
    automatically without going to the windows update site.

    Thanks for any help

    I forget to add this info, I will not be able to use the
    SUS package. I have mostly 98 machines with a few 2000
    and XP machines. I also have a non-windows OS on my
    servers.

  4. Hi

    Here is a third party product that supports Win98:

    PatchLink's Update
    http://www.patchlink.com


    From http://www.patchlink.com/support/documents/PUW4.html :

    "This white paper describes the features of PatchLink Update 5.0, a new
    solution for managing and distributing critical patches that resolve known
    security vulnerabilities and other stability issues in all Microsoft operating
    systems (95, 98, ME, NT, W2K, XP, .NET), UNIX (Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX,
    etc.), and Novell Netware. PatchLink Update 5.0 is the only patch detection
    and deployment software available for managing these heterogeneous network
    environments. This paper also includes solutions for customer scenarios which
    incorporate PatchLink Update."

    Have you looked into SUS server deploying updates through
    active directory OU's?

  6. Hi

    "Network Tech" has mostly 98 machines, so SUS is not an option for him...
