It looks like they need you to install an update or two and then make some changes in slmgr in command line.Has anyone tried automating this yet?

So far, the Windows 7 machines I've done already had the updates. And the commands seem pretty strait forward, seems scriptable. I would say the hang ups would be the activation ID, which is mostly standard, but I had one that differed. And the check process to verify that ESU is licensed. I'd like to script the check part alone so I can keep track of what computers have ESU applied in our system.
