We have started to deploy more Windows 2012 R2 servers on our network. When we log on to these servers (only admins log on to these servers), we are sometimes presented with a blue banner that says Updates are available and Go to Windows Update to install the updates now. It gives us the choice to either Install the updates or to Close the popup banner. That would be all well and good if this was a Windows 8 system, but it is not, this is a Windows 2012 R2 server.
We need to disable the banner so that someone doesn't accidentally click on Install. Stopping the update service on the server is not a solution for us. We want to be able to manually install updates on these servers.
How can we disable the popup banner on Windows 2012 R2 so that the notification doesn't appear on our servers?
