  • SUS Server

    Hi, we have used SUS Server (SP1) for automatic update about half year and it's working well. During that periode I've monitoring an update process in several machine (random) and found if we are log on (in the same machine) using administrators group an automatic update working well (pop up to notify a new update) but if log on using power users group sometimes it work and another time didn't work. I found this issue in some machine with the same condition. Please advice, thanks in advance.

    I found that you need to be an Administrator in order to cofigure updates. Try using WUS (beta) which has better features http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...rial.mspx#ECAA

      If using SUS Server without SP1 yes, you have to hold administrators right to perform update but after SP1 released that issue already covered. In our network, sometimes it working well, just curious if anybody having the same issue like us. When I log on using power users group account an update notification didn't pop up, but when I logon using administrators group account in the same machine a notification update working well and it happened in several machines. I have considering about SMS / WUS but we have no budget to buy SMS and WUS still a beta version. Our management didn't permitted to using beta/trial program in production system, I'll try it in my development server. I choose to waiting until it become released version.

        Why don't you simply force the installation of downloaded updates during off hours and enable the 'prompt user to reboot' in your template for Automatic Updates under Group Policy?

          Yap, I can do it that way, but if I do it like you said why should I have SUS Server? I can collecting an update in a folder and create a script to run it with qchain. The next question is how I determine which updates not yet applied in my clients? I can use over write option in my script, but I will not do it that way. It's working well in some machines, just curious about the thing that I have found.

            No, with my suggestion you NEED to use a local SUS server. Keep the control in your hands.

              The option to set times and restarts is in the additional Windows Update ADM file for Group Policy. We use it and it works great! All updates happen at 3am and users cannot shut down their machines so they all get done.

                Sus server

                Can someone tell me if users must be logged in for the updates to work via SUS and Active Directory Policies. We would like to run updates at night, but need to know if the users must stay logged in for it to work.

                  No the workstations just nedd to be on. At the login prompt is fine.

                  Goto http://www.pdxconsulting.com/sus/ to find a way of checking which PC's have got your updates after you have set your SUS server to go.

                  Hope this helps
