  • I don't really understand what you mean by inconvience.

    Technicly, if you work without WSUS server, you need to download the definitions from the security portal every day and run the exe file on each of the client workstations.


    if you have SCCM you can use its Software Update Feature to update you clients, or you can run write a script that runs the exe from a shared directory where you can update the file from time to time and run the script in a timely manner or at login.


    does this answer what you asked ?
