Office Updates

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by =?Utf-8?B?c3RyeWRlcg==?=, Oct 11, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know of a way to deploy MS Office updates across a domain? I
    know you can use SUS for OS updates, but I would like to be able to update
    Office this way as well.

    Thanks!

    Is login script an option?

  3. Yes, any suggestions? Would it be a login script implemented via GPO that
    automatically installs the update(s)?

    You could create a batch file to run the package. It could be as simple as:

    IF EXIST c:\ITStuff\patch01.txt GOTO AlreadyInstalled
    echo Patch01 was installed here > c:\ITStuff\patch01.txt
    echo Patch01 Setup was initiated on %ComputerName% on %date% at %time%
    >> \\myServer\MyShare\ITStuff\Patch01\Install.log

    MyPath\patch01.exe /MySilentInstallSwitch

    If the patch can return an error level, you can add the following as well.

    If errerlevel = 0 GOTO UpdateCompleted

    :UpdateCompleted
    echo Patch01 Setup was completed on %ComputerName% on %date% at %time%
    >> \\myServer\MyShare\ITStuff\Patch01\Install.log



    :AlreadyInstalled
    Echo I am done


    As always, this is just a rough script. Test it before you deploy it.

    Hope this helps.

    Irs not possible with SUS 1.1 at the moment, however MS are releasing WUS
    2.0 at the end of the year (yes WUS 2, not SUS 2, its been renamed). This
    will update OS like SUS does now, plus office 2000/2002/2003, and other
    applications. If this isn't urgent for the moment, I'd wait a few months,
    its due for release end of this year/early next year...I think!
