GPO and Automatic Updates

Why is it that when I create a GPO to perform automatic updates on a certain day of the week it doesn't reboot the computers?  I have option 4 enabled.  After checking a users computer, I still see that yellow shield icon indicating the updates have been downloaded, but still need to be installed.  I want it to download, install, and reboot.

Am I missing something?

HI

Then you must use

"Auto download and schedule the install. This option automatically begins downloading updates and then installs the updates on the day and time that you specify."


in the GPO

There is more to do than that, you have already chose option 4 as above.  You need to combine it with another policy.

See the following link for an easy matrix on how to achieve what you want (I didn't want to just copy and paste)

I went over this document but I still don't see how I can have the computer automatically restart after installing the updates.  Everything else I have covered.  Thanks!
