  • Greetings of Peace!

    I am administering WSUS right now.

    I want to enable my Windows 8 clients to automatically received and installed the above package so I can upgrade to windows 8.1 easily. Is there any way I can do this?

    Thank you.

  • Hi absolutezero,

    On WSUS server, in Products and Classifications, check window 8 and other related products you want, then click synchronization now.

    After synchronization, you may find these updates, then on WSUS server, right click these updates, and click "Approve for install":

    On clients, apply related GPO to configure Automatically update:

    Configure Clients Using Group Policy


    Best Regards,
