        I would like to role out the WSUS 1909 upgrade remotely and without the need to log into the remote machines to complete the upgrade. I use BatchPatch to start the install however when I login to the WIN10 unit it tells me I have to choose a start time because the upgrade is going to take some time. (see attachment)

        It would be nice if I didn’t have to complete the last step of the installation manually.

        Has anyone else experienced this issue?

        If so, does anyone have  a solution. Changing the reboot schedule does not seem to help

        I would expect there to be a command line switch to bypass the reboot prompt.

        How is the upgrade actually run? Do you have the command line / can you add switched via BatchPatch?

        p.s. I see BP uses PSexec, so it will be command line driven.

        cheers, Paul

        Ouch! BP is expensive at $400 per user. Why do you use it?

        cheers, Paul
