Wsus server not self updating
If the updates do not install within two days the updates will be installed right away.We can then specify if we want updates to install automatically every day, or specify a specific day of the week followed by the time the updates should begin from.Set this policy to enabled and then specify one of the four options.If this policy is left in the default Not Configured state, automatic updates are not configured and will be controlled manually on a per computer basis by the local administrator.
With automatic updates in place we can now sit back and relax, and by that I mean spend the time fixing some other problem instead.
In this post we will show you how to use group policy to configure computers within an Active Directory domain to perform automatic Windows updates from either the Internet or a WSUS server that you manage.
