I'd like to know where you are getting this information at.
I've never seen any instructions for CHQ that would advise me of any updates that I need to install, aside from MLS.

Although our admin computers are now on DSL (wireless), we still have the computers configured with the desktop 5.5 OS which prevented any updates from being automatically installed.

I'm aware of where to go to reconfigure the computers so they would perform automatic updates, but I've never been instructed to do so by anyone.

Without commenting on whether or not you need to do any manual updates, I would note that every administrative computer should now have the new Local Unit Computer Management Software. This updated version of LANDesk does do periodic OS updates.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

We have the new LANDesk package, but I've never noticed any updates other than what comes from the MLS package. I have to wonder if the restrictions from the original Desktop 5.5 OS have been changed?

Update: According to the GSD the updates occur silently in the background. I had them check one of our systems and we're up-to-date, which is nice to know.

LA Jackson,

Wow - 150 miles x 250 miles, what a large stake

Our stake is only 51 miles by 11 miles and I only have only one (1) MLS dial-up desktop, which at one time I did updates as you suggested with a flash drive. I now relocate the dial-up MLS desktop to another meetinghouse, which is close by with a DSL connection

It was reported on another thread that someone had their MLS desktop dial-up active for over four (4) hours and that updates were deployed. It should be noted that the last updates took over an hour with a DSL connection

This information that has been posted is only useful for those who want to keep their MLS desktops, with a DSL Internet connection, up to date with the most current versions of software from headquarters

It is assumed that you have LANDesk installed

Also, some of us have been known to keep their personal desktop patch at the same level as FHC desktops so that only working patches and updates are installed to protect desktops from a variety of threats on the Internet

Family History Centers (FHC) desktops:

Just got a cascaded desktop in and installed the current version of LANDesk

As part of the process, the "LANDesk Security and Patch Management" has started installing 115 patches

However, if the LANDesk is working properly, it should have updated itself and no further action required.

But it would be good to check.
