Install IE10 and required security patches with WSUS with only 1 or 2 reboots RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are planning to deploy IE 10 with WSUS.  Currently, it takes 1 reboot to apply IE 10 and 2 subsequent reboots to apply all the identified security patches for IE 10 via WSUS.  We are under close scrutiny to limit the number of times that computers must be rebooted to apply patches so that we don't impede our business function.

    Is there anyway to deploy IE 10 and all required IE 10 security patches with WSUS with only a single or 2 reboots?  As I understand WSUS already "packages" or "layers" patches in a manner to limit the number of reboots and that various patches must be installed only after pre-requisite patches are identified as installed.

    We are rolling out to a couple thousand machines and want to make the business impact as little as possible.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I find this unusual. Exactly how did you determine this to be the case. Which updates are you actually deploying to an IE10 environment?

    My investigation identifies that the only two updates are applicable to an IE10 (on Windows 7) environment. They are MS14-011 (KB290920), released Feb 2014,  and MS14-056 (KB2987107), released Oct 2014. Since these two updates *CAN* be installed concurrently, at worst these two updates installed concurrently would only trigger one reboot -- assuming they trigger a reboot at all.

  • I have solve the problem of "business" byt waking up computer at night by BIOS setting and shutdowning by remote script. Unless your business is 24x7, this may help.
