WSUS setting

shouichi asked
on
I set up Group policy so that all PC access to WSUS server to update .
I thought the configuration was successful.
On WSUS server, all pc is appear and I can attach some update file to all pc.
This windows update is supposed to be done without any user's confirmation,
when shutdown and starting , all windows update would be installed.

However, I noticed that each user can select update from windows update .
each user has only thier ordianary user's permission.


I am not sure reason why user can select update from the update list.
I don't want not to allow users to select some update.
without any confirmation, automatically, update should be done.

In order to do this, what kind of point should I check ?
important things are missing ?

The registry settings that control WSUS are described here:

You can try applying them with regedit imports using .reg files.

Or you can try applying them with group policy.

You must have configured the "Allow Non-administrators to Receive Update Notifications" group policy setting, by default (unconfigured) only administrators see updates on clients, if it's been set to "enabled" then ordinary users will get notifications too.
You either need to disable it or set it back to unconfigured.

Did you select "Automatically download updates and install them on the schedule specified below" ???

On Windows 7 PCs go to Windows Update, Change Settings, have a look at the state of the box "Allow all users to install updates on this computer" in the "Who can install updates" section.
