Updating FCS on Laptop away from WSUS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have WSUS deployed here and FCS is on all my desktops. Some of them are laptops and are updated every time they log into the local domain. Some of them go away for days and do not update automatically, eventough they connect to the internet using public places or offices. How can I setup those laptops to update FCS if they are not connected to the local domain?

    Regards
    Daniel

  • FCS policies have the option for "Check for update on Microsoft Update when WSUS is unavailble" under the "Advanced" section.  This will allow them to fail over to MU for only FCS updates when they cannot get to WSUS.

  • If your laptop is configured as WSUS client it will automatically updates your laptop when it will be connected to your corporate network. Alternatively you can also configure update via control panel -> windows update. By default windows update is On for updates of microsoft windows only. If you want to take update for other products of microsoft like forefront then do these steps:

    go to control panel-> windows update
    then click on " get updates for more products"

    It will install small active x control from microsoft and your forefront will take updates automatically from internet at home or office.
