    WSUS - small question regarding GPO's

    I would like to do the following with our GPOs and WSUS

    • download udpates from wsus
    • user keeps working
    • user turn machine off
    • machine installs updates at startup


    although i don't want any messages popping up about rebooting

    how can i go around doing this?

    Thanks in advance

    Dan

    You can't quite do all that. Everything is possible apart from installing at startup. However it is possible to install at shutdown (and it's also the default).

    ok at shutdown will be fine

    edit: will it also get rid of this message poping up every 10 minutes while the user is logged on

    All the settings you need are in the computer configuration. Under Admin Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Updates. The key ones for you are:

    Allow non-administrators to receive update notifications = Disabled (you need to set this in the user policy too)
    Configure Auto Updates -> 3. Download and Notify for install
    No auto restart with logged on users = Enabled

  5. Thanks to Geoff from:
