I have set up WSUS 2.0 (on 2008 R2). All client side machines are running Windows 8.1.
At the request of the users, i have been running with the below GP configuration so WSUS is less intrusive, and wont shut down their machines automatically etc. My understanding was that by disabling 'Do not display 'Install Updates and Shut Down' option in Shut Down Windows dialog box' it would behave as the description states:
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the 'Install Updates and Shut Down' option will be available in the Shut Down Windows dialog box if updates are available when the user selects the Shut Down option in the Start menu.
I have also disabled the "Do not adjust option to'Install Updates and Shut Down' option in Shut Down Windows dialog box'" which i thought would mean the default option at shut down would be to install updates and shutdown. As per its description:
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the 'Install Updates and Shut Down' option will be the default option in the Shut Down Windows dialog box if updates are available for installation at the time the user selects the Shut Down option in the Start menu.
I have a few test Win7 VM's and this is working as i would expect. However, the Win8.1 users do not get this option on shutdown. They are still required to open Windows Update and manually click 'Instal;l Updates'.... not ideal from my perspective, as you could imagine, some users are not installing them at all.
Is there a way to make this option available on Win8.1 OS, or is the only option to change 'Configure Automatic Updates' to option 4 and set a schedule to install them. I want to avoid this if at all possible.
My current GPO set up is as per below. Has anyone got any ideas?
Do not display install updates and shut down option.... : Disabled Do not adjust option to install and shut down...... : Disabled Enabling Windows Update Power Mgt to automatically Wake up system : Enabled Configure Automatic Updates : option 3 : Enabled Specify intranet MS update location : Enabled Automatic Updates frequency : Enabled Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation : Enabled
All the rest are set to 'not configured'
