Adding Patches to a Windows Image in SCCM


A lot of People have been asking this question on how do we keep our Windows Image as Updated with Patches and not have to create it from the scratch every time around . Let us say that you have created a windows Image and deployed it on some users machine . After two months you have to deploy the OS image again .As apparent , the image is not an updated image with latest patches .In this case you can :

 

1. Recreate the Image from the Scratch with Latest Patches and apply it.

2. Update Image using SCCM Schedule Updates Utility.

3. Using DCIM.

4. Using MDT

 

1. Recreate the Image : In this method you recreate the Image and then capture a reference computer with Latest Patches and then Import it into SCCM. Though simple , the process is time consuming and prone to Issues if Image is not captured properly.
