Hi all - we have thousands of systems which is in the process of upgrade and our SCCM Admins are using software center to push these updates. SCCM DP is hosted on corporate network but since users are working from home the updates are going via WAN and failing apart and update process is not successful.

If there is any more easier way to update windows from 1809 to 1909 like usb, iso, copy the task sequence file etc ? any sort of easier way to upgrade these machines for remote users.

    Hi @Ali Taqvi ,

    For monthly patching, you can use also Split tuning with your VPN and let the devices download the binaries from Internet instead of your local DP.

    You can find much posts describing this behavior.

    Since you have split tunneling enabled, if you can have them pull updates from MS, you might consider looking into using Feature Updates.

    Feature updates would replace your Task Sequence as the method for upgrading Windows 10 from build to build.
    Adam has a good write up and a lot of tools to help with the process

    As others have said, CMG would also help greatly in this situation.
