  • Look for this in your task sequence and enable it.

    If you need to add something specific like hot-fixes then use Packages, but I'd recommend creating folders for each OS you intend to support and create matching selection profiles. Then update your task sequence to apply the correct packages.

  • Why not:

    1. install the updates directly in the reference image?
    2. Enable in your task sequence: Windows Update http://scriptimus.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/mdt-2012-automating-updates-in-lite-touch-deployments/


      To answer your question: That would be the Packages node.

      In your task sequence you can add in the Post Install section : from General - Install Updates offline

      It uses the All Packages selection profile by default but you can create a more specific selection profile if needed.



      Upload your updates to the Packages folder (create a sub folder structure as to reflect processor architecture and OS version if relevant).

      Create a Selection profile that contains the Updates you uploaded in the Packages (sub)folders

      In your task sequence in Post Install select the correct selection profile

  • Another idea would be to put in the syntax for your WSUS server in the customsettings.ini if you have a WSUS for your location. It will then connect to it and install the updates. This can be done when you are building your reference VM.
