Not sure how many times you need to be reminded that this is a Network Operators Group?

Gday Noggers,

We are now using PXE Boot installations to install all our servers from dedicated servers, to virtual servers and all servers in between

As part of the installation process with Windows 2008 R2 installations, it allows to setup additional services / features during the installation's post install,

ServerManagerCmd.exe -install Web-Server -allSubFeatures -restart
ServerManagerCmd.exe -install SMTP-Server -allSubFeatures -restart
ServerManagerCmd.exe -install telnet-client -allSubFeatures -restart
# 3 = automatically download but do not install updates, change to 4 for fully automatic
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
# We do always want to automatically install the critical RDP bugfix
net stop TermService /y
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Remote Desktop" new enable=yes
wuinstall.exe /install /match KB2621440

I was wondering if anybody on or off list might be able to provide some instructions on how to add to the script to set our WSUS and timeserver before it updates windows

If anybody can provide assistance I would be highly appreciative.
