Microsoft update is based on the actual version of the Auto update
client on the workstation.


Unless you are running the WSUS server and configure the server to auto
update the client to the latest version- you will need to manually
update the client or create and deploy a package to update the client.


After the client workstation has the latest AU client- it will download
and install MS updates as well as Windows updates- based on the
configuration of the autoupdate/windows update settings on the machine-
whether it is set manually or applied through GPOs.

Subject: [gptalk] Microsoft Updates vs Automatic Updates - GPO


I checked some of the archives and I can't see where we have discussed
this before on this list, but I would imagine it had to come up.


Is there a way to enable Microsoft updates with Group Policy.   I know
you can set policies for Automatic updates, but this is different that
Microsoft Updates.


Any ideas?
