how do i identify which server is pushing updates in my office?

Hi,
i have a strange situation here:
- i have a server with microsoft system center configuration manager R2 which is my main WSUS server having as parent site another SCCM server from a diffrent location
- i have on my office domain controllers a GPO called servers which i used to install and manage my updates using  2 – Notify for download and notify for install – 1 Every Sunday
in the last 4 days my servers starts to install updates and reboot.
how can i see which server send all this updates and why they are passing my gpo?
thank you.

If the ConfigMgr is in fact using Software Updates to deploy updates, please do the following:

Site Server --> Computer Management --> Software Updates --> Deployment Management

Within the Deployment Management container you should see any Software Update deployments that are targeting your systems.  You can right-click delete these if you wish to cease the deployment.

Thanks,
Ex

Check this registry key on the sever in question to see what configurations you have for Windows Update.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\WindowsUpdate]

It should give you more details.

Hello BetfairRomania!

Are you using SCCM Software Updates to manage your updates or the stand-alone WSUS server?

Remember:  GPOs are used to designate the WSUS for updates, GPOs are NOT used to designate when SCCM SUP is used.  This will cause problems.

If you are using SCCM SUP for your updates, you need to remove the GPO being forced on the systems you want updated.

hi,
i installed WSUS server but i tried to manage the updates using SCCM
this cause my servers to install the updates and rebooting in a very haotic way
i want to stop this fact which it means for now I want to remove the updates from SCCM (how can i do this) and to use WSUS server standard with GPO until i find a documentation which explains me the right way to configure updates using SCCM.  
thank you
