Task Sequence is very slow during download of updates

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm having a bit of trouble with a task sequence. Everything runs fine and quick, until 'Running Action: install Software Updates'. It seems to hang/stall at 60% for hours. I can't see anything in the logs that obvious.


I have a Primary in DomainA, and a Secondary in DomainB, and a DP off the Secondary in DomainB. The client PXE boots off the DP, seems to to do everything fine until the 'Install Software Updates' part. It does eventually complete after a few hours. As far as I can tell, all the updates are distributed to the DP.


Can anyone point me in the right direction of where to look.

Just upgraded to 1610, we'll see if its any better. :unsure:


Nice, please do tell me if it's any better.

I'll plan an upgrade in one or two months.


If you deploy Windows 10 than it's probably the Cumulative Update that's taking too long.

I really don't understand Microsofts logic in implementing Cumulative Updates in a professional environment.

That means that all clients have to download approx. 1GB only to install a small portion of the update. Ridiculous!


I hope the new "Express Updates" will be an improvement in the new release of Current Branch.
