GPO - Which one do I need to enable for the option to Not Reboot after Updated?

My two DC's are 2003 and clients are all XP SP2. We have automatic updating enabled and I have found that after the machines have been updated, they are not given the option to Restart the machine at a later time. This is bad if they are working on a Document etc.., and can't restart later.

Which GPO do I need to Enable to allow them to Restart the machine later? Isn't it the "Act as part of the Operating System" user right? Please let me know location of GPO as well.

Cheers

hello

enable this.....
Computer > admin tempates > Windows components > windows updates > "no auto restarts for scheduled automatic updates"

from microsoft....
"If the status is set to Enabled, Automatic Updates will not restart a computer automatically during a scheduled installation if a user is logged in to the computer. Instead, Automatic Updates will notify the user to restart the computer.

I personally then set the "re prompt for restart with scheduled installations" to 360 as it will remind the user every 10mins if it is left disabled...

see how it goes!

Are you using a WSUS server or are the downloading of updates managed by the XP machines. If not then unless you want to give your users admin rights they can not delay the automatic rebooting of their machines after automatic updates. One thing you can do is schedule the install of updates for after work hours.

If you set these up to use MS Updates, then set the schedule for 3am, this way nobody is bothered.
