Run update without user intervention

    Our SUS updates are scheduled to run at 4am each morning.
    However when we rebuild a PC during the day, we want the
    SUS updates to be run on the PC immediately. ie: as soon
    as the updates have been copied down to the PC. As our
    rebuild process is automated, we would like to avoid
    having to double click on the SUS balloon and then
    clicking on INSTALL.
    Can anyone suggest a way to avoid that human intervention.
    (We considered replaying a macro of mouse clicks but the
    balloon appears at different places on the task bar.)

  2. Hi

    Fyi, there is a separate newsgroup for SUS:

    microsoft.public.softwareupdatesvcs

    news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.softwareupdatesvcs

    URL to the group softwareupdatesvcs for those who uses the not so good Web
    interface to access the newsgroups:
    http://communities.microsoft.com/Ne...newsgroup=microsoft.public.softwareupdatesvcs

    A Web site about SUS with a FAQ and a SUS forum:
    http://www.susserver.com/
