We have started using Azure Update Management for our Windows VM's in Azure.

But I cannot find any documentation, indicating the recommended Windows Update configuration settings in the OS.

For example, should we use Sconfig within the OS and set Windows Updates to Manual, or Disabled, or some other custom setting?

Does anyone know of any documentation I may have missed or have any recommendations on this?


Update Management relies on Windows Update to download and install Windows Updates. As a result, we respect many of the settings used by Windows Update. If you use settings to enable non-Windows updates, Update Management will manage those updates as well. If you want to enable downloading updates before an update deployment occurs, update deployments can go faster and be less likely to exceed the maintenance window.


Customers who have invested in System Center Configuration Manager to manage PCs, servers, and mobile devices also rely on its strength and maturity in managing software updates as part of their software update management (SUM) cycle.
