We have Satalite ISP service unfortunately and have to work around a (Fair Air Policy) for downloads. Our limit is 500mb per 24 hour period and if we reach that our internet speed reduces to a snail's pace. In order to work with this the ISP gives  us a unlimited download time frame of 2am to 6am to do large downloads such as updates.

Can someone explain a way to check what time of day the SBS 2008 server will check and more importantly start downloading updates for all our computers. And then how to change that time to 2am. I'm not looking for when it does the update installs but when the downloads take place and how to change this.

This points me in the right direction. I will have to investigate a configuration to first get the clients to search and download updates from internal server. Probably the specify intranet microsoft update service location setting. And then set this server to download updates after 2am instead of anytime. More work to get a final answer.
