If you are deploying in a controlled environment like me, you may want to do it via Windows Server Update Services. Downloading the 577.4 MB is not practical, specially if you share your Internet connection, right? If you still don’t have WSUS, do checkout my previous post on how to deploy updates using the Windows Server Update Services.
Before deploying, make sure that your clients have already installed these KB’s: KB968279 and KB955430, deploying this is the same as the SP2 (KB948465), but its best to approve of these pre-requisites first before having the SP2 come down the pipe.
As you may notice on my screenshot a warning sign has already flagged me that I need to install this update or the clients are now requesting for this update.
Lets examine the details by clicking the update. The details are located at the bottom. Yes, this is the update, lets approve it!
To approve the update, right click the update then on the context menu, click Approve.
On the approve dialog box, Select the group that you want to approve the update, on this scenario, Im going to approve this to all of the computers. So I right click all computers then choose Approved for Install
This is a special update, and a License Terms must be accepted to proceed with the update push.
And the approval process continues and finishes. Click close to exit the dialog box.
