Is it possible set automatically update installation with delay from publish date?? For example, install it 1 month later. I want to set it only for not-critical security updates at Windows Server 2012 R2.

My reason is that MS often release an update without support by another MS software, or this updates has a bug and later are take back.



There are no native Windows Update settings that will allow you to do this AFAIK. You could deploy a WSUS server which would allow you to approve and install updates only after you've tested them.

  • Thx, I will try to browse WSUS API documentation and perhaps to create an application or script. – zdenál Aug 8 '16 at 16:25

you can not do it automatically in WSUS based on a date after release either. either do it automatically by windows update or WSUS or you need to do it manually or with third party tools
