Use the Update Management task to install updates on a WSUS server on the approved target systems. The following procedure is an alternative to waiting for the Windows Update Agent on the target systems to sync with the WSUS server for scheduled updates.

Note: This section does not apply to ConfigMgr environments. If you use ConfigMgr to manage your updates, use the ConfigMgr console to deploy the updates you publish using Patch Manager.

To deploy updates using the Update Management task:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Enterprise > Update Services > Your WSUS Server > Updates.

  2. Select your third party updates view. If you have not yet created this view, see "Creating a Third Party Updates View".

  3. In the center pane, select one or more of the update packages you published. Use Ctrl+click to select multiple packages.

  4. In the Actions pane (right), click Update Management.

  5. On the Update Management window, click OK.

  6. In the Task Options Wizard window, add the computers on which you want to install the updates.

  7. Click Next.

  8. Complete the Scheduling and Notification Options form, and then click Next.

  9. Click Finish.
