All managed systems access the WSUS server to receive published updates. If a targeted system belongs to one or more traveling employees, the systems will not receive the updates. Schedule the published updates to run each day or week for up to thirty days based on your corporate IT policy. When the employees log in and reconnect to the WSUS server, the scheduled task publishes the updates to their systems. This process will not affect systems that received and installed the updates.

  1. Enter a name and description for the task.

  2. Select Schedule the task to run daily, weekly, or monthly in the Schedule Settings box, and click Edit.

  3. Select a start time and date. Select Universal Time to select Greenwich Mean Time. In this example, the Start Time is 9AM. This allows the update to begin when most employees are in the corporate office.

  4. Select how often the task should run in the assigned department or group. For example, run the task for at least three weeks to ensure that all users who are on vacation receive the update when they return to the office.
