Windows Update as postimage task

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Would it be possible to run a windows update task when image is deployed? Either a built in functionality or a custom script? MS patches are released every month and defender definitions even more often. It'd be a good functionality to have your base image updated with latest patches and security updates.

Thanks

Seems like you can force detection with "wuauclt.exe /detectnow" but you'll probably need to have group policy configured to automatically install the updates you want in order for it to actually start installing any updates on its own.

True, but when you log on as a local administrator (which I enabled as autologon for first 2 boots to install apps and configure a few things) I can check for updates. My question was whether or not SmartDeploy is planning to include this in your post configuration tasks. Like in a deploy wizard you can select if you want to install newest updates (and get to choose from like required updates, optional updates, definition updates etc). I can wrap up a script that will essentially do this for me and install them, but a built-in functionality of such would make the deployment process even better.
