steady state remote administration? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Greetings,

     

    We are contemplating deploying steady state in a 100+ pc library. All of the machines are on a domain and controlled through group policy. My question is this. Once every 3 months we open for extended hours. Becuase of this we can not have the computers rebooting during the update window. Is there anyway to control this remotely and as a group without having to touch every machine? I know there are scripts out there to turn WDP off and on but I have not found anything regarding update times.

    Hi,

     

    SteadyState stores its update schedule in the following registry values:

     

    [HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Windows SteadyState\Parameters]

    "EnableAutomaticUpdates"=dword:{0, 1}

    "AutomaticUpdateDay"=dword:{0-7}  (0 = every day; 1 = sunday, 2 = monday, ...)

    "AutomaticUpdateTime"=dword:{0-24}

     

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    I am afraid that we cannot control the power behaviors for all of the domain members.
