    Create a GPO for only your servers and include these settings:

    computer->admin templates->windows components->windows updates->

    configure automatic updates
    1.   set to '4' - auto download and schedule the install
    2.  set the day (mine is 1 - Every Sunday)
    3.  Schedule isntall time (mine is set to 8:00 am)

    No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic update installations->
    1.  Enabled
