Not sure if this topic is in the right place, but as some of you know Microsoft will be rolling out major security updates for older versions of IE and even Office. Things like this can impact the workplace immensely if said workplace has their servers (or terminal servers) still using the older IE or Office versions.

 

My question is how can one make this happening go smoother for users? I'm assuming we'd have to set up some sort of GPO, but I'm wondering what some of you experts think?

Hi,

 

One way to do it is by using WSUS the server will download all the updates and you have control when your clients will install the updates.

 

The recommended approach is to have some testing clients running the critical applications, first you approve the updates only for those clients and test the effect before approving for all the machines.

Thanks Sleepy Dude!

 

I think I forgot to mention that our users log into a personal terminal session on their machines. So wouldn't it be easier to update the terminal machines this weekend to bypass any of that?

 

Our users only use applications on the terminal servers.

Probably yes if you are confident that the updates will not break your setup!
