verify GPO for WSUS

we have our WSUS server and we  have these GPO settings:


Delay Restart for scheduled installations Disabled
Do not adjust default option to 'Install Updates and Shut Down' in Shut Down Windows dialog box Disabled
Do not display 'Install Updates and Shut Down' option in Shut Down Windows dialog box Disabled
No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations Enabled
Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations Enabled


but our servers get rebooted whenever the updates are installed, and we don't want that to happen.

any help?

thanks

Run gpresult from a command prompt on each server to confirm that they are receiving the GPOs that you think they are.

You can also run the Resultant Set of Policy Wizard against one or more servers to obtain a graphical view of this, as well as to see if the servers are receiving incorrect/conflicting settings from elsewhere in the AD tree, as described in the following tutorial: http://www.2000trainers.com/windows-2003/group-policy-rsop/

Recommend you configure WSUS settings for your servers to use the "Auto download and notify for install" option.  This way an administrator can perform the installation at a convenient time, particularly if the patches for a particular month include ones that require a reboot.  You should not leave your servers indefinitely without a reboot if patches call for one, as this will leave your servers in an unprotected state.
