WSUS and laptops RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use WSUS and control it via Group Policy.  If I have a laptop that is in the office and on the network, it will get it's updates from WSUS when they are approved (e.g. 2pm on patch Tuesday).  The laptop will also get it's instructions for when to schedule those updates (in our case 3am) and will wake it up if it's asleep.  My question is what happens if the laptop is taken home and is not on the network when 3am comes along?  Does it still follow it's instructions?

    Thanks!

    Jim

    PS: our Group Policy is configured as such:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation: Enabled

    Allow non-Administrators to receive update notifications: Enabled

    Automatic Updates detection frequency: 1 hour

    Configure Automatic Updates: Enabled

    Install during automatic maintenance: Enabled

  • Hi,

    This behavior is controlled by "Reschedule Automatic Updates scheduled installations".

    If the client miss the updates for some reason, these updates will be installed in the next scheduled installation.
