Would love to hear your suggestions to accomplish the following.
I'm looking for a way for WSUS to automatically download the previous months Critical and Security updates on every 10th of the month. Prior to the updates, I'd like to somehow automate a snapshot of the VM in VMWare in case the update breaks things.
I have currently installed a standalone WSUS server (2012) that downloads from WU and I have configured 5 computer groups and assigned servers based on impact (and current manual update batches). I have assigned servers via GPO's which set the target group etc and are assigned to servers by their security group membership.
There are also non domain joined computers that i have set to point to the relevant group on the WSUS server.
I don't know how to schedule updates for each group however (limited knowledge of WSUS)
