Updating group policy on windows 2016
However, when I disabled the Automatic Updates via Group Policy, no downloads were shown.
With the help of the networking monitoring tool, I could see that Windows downloaded a couple of megabytes from Windows Update, but then stopped.
If you apply this policy to a Windows 10 1607 machine, the corresponding configuration in the local settings app won't change.Anderson Patricio is a Canadian MVP in Cloud and Datacenter Management, and Office Server and Services, besides the Microsoft Award he also holds a Solutions Master (MCSM) in Exchange and several other certifications.Anderson has been contributing to the Microsoft Community with articles, tutorials, blog posts, twitter, forums and book reviews.However, the ability to centrally and locally configure Active hours, as a way of preventing unwanted restarts, is advantageous.I also appreciate being able to configure another restart time once the updates are downloaded.
The option, Never check for updates (not recommended), of previous Windows versions, can be configured by disabling the policy.
