Let's say that I've got a lot of different Windows servers to install updates on. I.e. about 50 servers; running Windows server 2003, 2008, 2012 (service packs, R2 editions, and such), some 32bit and then some 64bit versions.
Every once in a while, I'd like to run Windows update on these. The WSUS server gathers the updates, and the servers can use that source to install updates from. But I don't want to go through the update process manually!
I.e. switching the video/keyboard input to a specific server, pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, filling in the admin credentials, logging in, waiting for the Windows update bubble to show up, clicking on the update button ... all this, fifty times in a row, that's rather futile.
Is there a lazy man's solution that would execute the update process for me? As far as I'm concerned, a dead-simple interface with a single "Update the servers" button of sorts would be tremendously helpful. If the interface provided a centralized overview (which servers are in the middle of installing the updates, which ones finished successfully, which ones failed updating some updates, which ones are in a need of restart, and such), that would be terrific.
If there's some setting up to do to achieve this, let's hear it!
