I have a scenario where I have two Windows 2003 servers on an active directory domain (same organizational unit), and a single domain user is being used to log into each server via Remote Desktop (the user is a member of the administrators group).
On server1, I can access the "automatic updates" dialog via Control Panel -> Automatic Updats and can change the settings as expected.
On server2, the "automatic updates" dialog appears, but all the controls are grayed out.
Does anyone know what situations could occur that would cause this difference in behavior, again, noting that it's the same AD user that is accessing each server?
I've looked at the local policy on server2, based on suggestions provided below, but I am not sure which policy I'm looking for. None seemed to jump out at me, so any specific suggestion would be appreciated.
