LOL. Is that a state law? I certainly would contact Senator Mazie Hirono who claims that she is fighting for Hawaii. She acts like she has common sense when she's on TV.

Security is difficult, and patching is part of security.

Pick a single day, prior to the quietest and patch that night (PC's will be on for 1 night)
Or start looking at the magic packet and wake on LAN to patch in groups

Not a state law but a requirement by the local utility.  Too much consumer supply of electricity from solar panels makes their system unruly so... you have to get approval from the utility first before they will allow you to install solar panels.  As for our illustrious senator... you can't always believe what you hear and see.....

I have not worked with WSUS much but I did find the updates will eat up 200 - 300GB hard drive space real quick. Was not aware of that when I setup the server and did not have the funds to add more hard drives in the Raid. We only have about 30 pc so it is not a hard push on the server. I put a 4TB USB hard drive on the server, moved the existing updates to it and set the USB drive as the Storage for the updates. No problems so far.
Also just started using GFI LanGuard for patch management, I have been impressed with it. You can set it to pull the MS updates from the WSUS server so it does not pull them down a second time. The GFI would be extra cost $14.00 per pc per year.

I did a lot of reading up on it before doing the setup.  So far though, there haven't been much for updates at least what I'm seeing in the console.  In fact, I hear the windows 10 spring creators update is close to being released so it will be interesting to see how this works.  I had an update for my machine at home - forget the KB article it applied to - but it was newer than the last update on the client machines at work and would have figured it would have been pulled down but nothing has shown up yet. Am considering looking for something to check the functionality of it to make sure it is actually checking for windows 10 updates.
