Hi

Is it possible to set a policy, so AU automatic installs updates in the backgroud on our workstations. Then our users don't have to click install on AU etc.

Thanks

Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components/Windows Update

Sample GPO, download and install the fixes at 3:00 a.m. or later, target clients to specific group in WSUS
Local workstation admins will still get the yellow information icon.
