SBS 2003 Boot Camp - Offline Update

Another thing that was mentioned in the Boot Camp was the massive amount of time and bandwidth that can be consumed whilst updating a server or workstation. One excellent way to address this is with the Heise Security tool called "Offline Update". A good description of its use can be found on their website and the latest version of the tool can be found on its Project page.

This is something that we run once a month here at the office to keep our DVD up to date. It downloads the updates for Office 2003, Office 2007, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003. This saves a lot of time onsite.
