We recently purchased Kaseya to fulfill our patch management needs among other things.  One of the things I need to do is disable or turn off my current Autopmatic update settings that I have configured with my WSUS server through GPO in order to allow the patch management control the patching process.  If I have a GPO setting this will reset the software setting everytime the GPO is applied.  I could do a couple of things set all the GPO back to not configured and wait for group policy to be refreshed and then set the settings in the software which will push out the registry settings to the client machines.  The other option I can think of is to disable windows update altogether through gpo's.  What do you think my best bet is and how can I disbale GPO's for Automatic updates?  Should I simply set them to disabled or not configured?
