Deploying Windows XP SP3 without GPO and WSUS

If You are managing wide infrastructure of your organization You could be unpleasantly surprise that Windows XP SP3 is not deployed to every Windows XP machine.

For some reason WSUS is not an option and GPO is upgraded to Windows Server 2008 R2 functionality. What You will do?

Using GPO is not an option because of too much configuration and lot of requested modification.

Using of logon script could be a point.

Requests is that you can deploy and install Windows XP SP3 without disturbing users.

At first we must create temporary user with administrative rights

After that we must download lsrunas tool. We will use it for passing the password. You can download it from here.

After that we will put Windows XP SP3 (WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU) in network share accessible for domain users.

Check that every user can see it.

Create .bat script with following parameters

lsrunas.exe /user:tempadmin /password:password /domain:domain /command:xpsp3.cmd /runpath:

Create .cmd script with parameters:

net use x: /delete /y (where x is logical name of ntw share where SP3 is)

net use x: \\server\share ( reconnect share)

x:

cd sp3 (where Sp3 is name of directory where .exe file is)
