  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for the post.

     

    I agree with Johan. We can deploy the client software through Group Policy, SMS, login scripts and WSUS. If we deploy FCS agent with WSUS, please perform the following steps:

    Step 1 - In WSUS: Approve FCS package

    Step 2 - On server: Create and deploy FCS policy

    Step 3 - Client: will install FCS agent from WSUS

     

    Speed up (after uninstall existing anti-virus):

    gpupdate.exe /force

    wuauclt.exe /detectnow

     

    Regards,

  • Hi!

    The command you ran, wuauclt.exe \detectnow, only initiates an already connected client to search for available updates on the wsus.

    If you want to connect a client without applying a GPO you need to export the wsus registry settings from a connected client and import to the client you are mentioning.
