Windows Updates

WSUS Patching (Windows Server Update Services) has been enabled to provide campus computers with the latest Windows critical and security OS updates from Microsoft.  Please note that this requires little interaction and the following is a description of the process.
On the second Tuesday of every month Windows Critical and Security updates are released.  IT will approve the updates to be installed on the Friday of each week.
The updates will be set to push and install every day at 8am.  The approved updates will be pulled down to the workstation the next time the client polls for them from the Windows update server.  Once the updates have been downloaded to the client workstations they will begin installing as shown in the image below.  Users will be able to continue working while the updates are being installed. 

Windows 10:

  • Windows 10 users will see the following in the Settings App -> Windows Update screen which confirms that your updates are being installed by WSUS.  If updates are installed, there will also be a notice to ‘update and restart’ when attempting to sign out or shut down your machine.  A restart is required to complete the installation of the updates or to allow for further updates to be installed.
