Updating multiple PC's from a central location

Postby Bojangles » Fri Jul 20, 2012 6:39 pm

Hello, I'm new to these forums so forgive me if I'm posting in an inappropriate board for this question.

I'm a lab tech for a university and I work in 5 different labs all with about 20-30 computers, all are running windows 7. We can access our computers via Baseline Shield RMS from a back room and send commands to shutdown/restart etc.

I am in search of a program/application or something that would allow me to access our PC's from the same computer and allow us to update them remotely (and preferably at the same time). Lets assume price is not an issue.

Thank you for your time, ask me any questions if I left out any important information.

Ultra VNC seems to just allow me to access one computer at a time. Do you know if I could use the program to send one command to many pc's at once with it?

Bojangles,

Windows Server Update Services is what I believe you are looking for.
It looks like there is a learning curve to overcome but it should give you the results you are looking for.

Also, System Center Configuration Manager 2012 will do it with even more control. But that depends on your budget. If it's low, WSUS is free. :)
