Windows 10: Update all computer on local network.

  1.    02 Dec 2017 #1

    Update all computer on local network.


    Not sure if this is possible,but here we go. I have a computer with 3 hard drives installed,all 3 have Windows 10 installed on them. Lets say the drives are called Bill,Tom,Jane, when the computer boots you chose what drive to use,Bill is the main one. I have a Metered Connection to control date usage. If I do a update on Bill can I make the updte go on Tom & Jane too? If I update all 3 it takes a lot of data. I see in Delivery Optimation you can select PCs on my local network, for some reason it is all grayed out so can't make a change. Is there any way to download updates for one drive then have it update the other two OS.
    Thanks for any suggestions

    I guess I will use this setup as 3 different computer,can I download all windows 10 updates to a thumb drive then install on other 2 computer. All 3 are the same,just need a way to update all 3 with one download.

    I open Update and Security, check for updates and scroll down to Learn More. On that page I look for Windows Update Catalog to get the offline installer and from there can download both the x86 and x64 versions of the latest build. I download then Copy to a Thumb drive to use on computers that have a slow connection. I put them on the same Thumb drive I have made using the MCT/Media Creation Tool. That catalog page usually shows 4 versions or in some cases will also show a Delta version for use on computers that are otherwise fully up-to-date, are a bit smaller file size. In File Explorer double-clicking those files get them started installing.

    Thanks Berton, will give a try. Might be hard the first time trying, but sure it will become easy. Will leave all drives metered connection and watch for updates.



    Just tried to do a security update KB2267602 with no luck. Microsoft Update Catalog could not find this.
