Steady State, Scheduled Update takes a long time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have enabled Steady State and WDP - additionally I have configured the Steady State Scheduled Update component for both Windows Update and McAfee AV.
    For Windows Update I have a local WSUS; and for Mcafee (at this time) we have to go to the Internet.
    Nevertheless, when I manually trigger the WSUS and AV updates, it will take less then a minute to let me know if there are updates; and then proceed to install them (if some exists), else is simply says there are none...again this process take under a minute.

    HOWEVER, when Steady State perfroms its Scheduled Update, the computer reboots, disables WDP, reboots again - and then waits for about 30-40 minutes before rebooting and enabling WDP and rebooting again. This happens everytime, even if there are no WSUS or AV updates available.

    Please advise.
    Steady State is running on Windows XP SP3 computers with 2GB RAM.

    Thank you,
