We've got a problem with Windows Update settings applied by Group Policy on Windows 7 PCS (with Windows 2008 R2 servers).
I've followed a couple of guides that are supposed to prevent the "Restart your computer to finish installing important updates", yet it still appears.
The two purportedly key settings are applied as follows:
(Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update)
No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates - Enabled
Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations - Enabled and set to 600 minutes
Just for information there are a bunch of other settings also applied, partly for WSUS, and partly to resolve other related issues:
Allow non-administrators to receive update notifications - Disabled
Configure Automatic Updates - Enabled
Enable client-side targeting - Enabled
Specify intranet Microsoft update service location - Enabled
Turn on Software Notifications - Disabled
I've used RSOP.MSC on a client PC displaying the issue, and that says the group policy in question has been applied and all the settings are there without issue.
Can anyone identify what setting is incorrect, or needs to be applied to get rid of this nagging dialog?
Do you have any settings other than the WSUS ones configured in that GPO? And do you have it linked to an OU with the computers that you want to target?
I have a separate WSUS GPO with mainly just the computer settings you specified above and the user loopback set to merge plus the one user setting I mentioned above and it works correctly with no pop ups etc for the logged on user. I would test this with a separate GPO on a test OU and computer to make sure it works as expected.
