Install Packages without rebuilding server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have injected a heap of new patches into 'OS Packages' and want to now run a job on some servers to install these new updates without needing to rebuild the server.

    I have a new 'Custom' Task Sequence and added a new 'Install Updates Offline' job and pointed it to the Selection Profile that was updated above.

    On the server I want to update I'm running \\MDTServer\Deploy$\Scripts\LiteTouch.wsf, select the new Custom TS to run which completes successfully straight away without actually installing any new updates.

    Whats the best way to install the new patches over top of any existing install without doing a complete rebuild?

  • There isn't a built in way to do this.  We don't do online patching in MDT.  WSUS or Windows Update is probably more along what you are looking for.
