Windows 7: Replicating Windows Critical Updates To Many Same Model PCs

Replicating Windows Critical Updates To Many Same Model PCs

I have an industrial customer that would like us to manage their Windows and SCADA system service packs and updates. They have 15 PCs that we will need to have synchronized updates installed between them and only updates that the SCADA system software developer has approved. Once an offline PC has been selectively updated it must be tested for proper functionality in a test environment before rolling out updates to the 15 PCs on the production floor. Each of the 15PCs will have unique settings and software installed but all will have the same Windows SPs and updates installed.

In the test environment I have internet access to manually request for Windows updates. I then select only the updates in the critical list that is on the approved SCADA system list. Updates are installed and a day’s worth off testing is conducted to confirm all critical updates have not created any system performance issues.

Production PCs are on a private IP segment with no possible chance of getting temporary internet access approved. Is there a way of replicating the selected windows critical updates completed in the test environment and sneaker netting them to the production floor PCs? I would imagine the updates would need to take place in the same order as windows automatically took care of in the test environment.

You can either use WSUS, or script a batch of updates for installation - in your circumstances, I suspect that the latter will be the way to go

I've noticed that when I put an "Optional" update (Win 7) into the Hidden "folder," it is then marked "Recommended." If I "restore" a Hidden Recommended update, it then changes to "Optional" when it is restored. Does anyone know what I am trying to explain? A file says Optional when I look in the...

There hasn't been any critical updates for Win 7,right?
Has there been any critical updates for Windows 7? At least I haven't seen anyone. But it is very rare, because they always send some critical updates in their first month, and there's been zero. Or, am I wrong?
