SCCM 2012 - Managing Workstation Updates
As it's been pretty miserable for a bank holiday (suprise suprise) I've been messing arround with my test setup for SCCM.
The one bit I'm struggling to get my head around is managing updates for Workstations and controlling the reboot.
With WSUS, I've got the GPO set to automatically download and update computers at lunchtime and prompt for a restart, but I don't see how you can achieve the same setup in SCCM. The only thing that seems to come close would be to allow the deployment to occur as soon as possible and then supress a reboot so that it doesn't go off and restart in the middle of a lesson. Making it optional like I've done for the test server makes sense and links in with the existing WSUS policy for prompt but don't download, but can't see any similar configuration to install at this time for workstation.
So, really I'm wondering how people deal with deploying updates through SCCM to machines and the reboot (which polciies are configured or the process used) and if a deadline is used, how it deals with machines which are off when the deadline passes.
