Options for Handling Automatic Windows Updates to the Loaner Laptops

Reported by Tracey at the Helpdesk

They are set for updates, so there are two ways you can handle this:

  1. When a laptop returns, connect it to the network, log in with the local user account.  After a couple of minutes the laptop should pickup the update and you will see a balloon notice that there are updates to be installed.  proceed with the updates.
  2. When a laptop returns from loans, leave it turned on and connected to the network (but not logged in) in the morning (9am - noon).  The update should happen automatically sometime between those hours and the laptop will reboot itself.Jan.6/06
