Disable WSUS automatic restart
Posted on 2012-03-18
I have a WSUS server installed in a domain enviorment.
All servers in the domain are configured using a GPO to connect to the WSUS for updates.
The WSUS is installing the updates successfully, but after it finishes it FORCES a restart if no user is logged on.
Is there anyway to disable that completely?
I have already seen the GPO named "No auto-restart with logged on users..." but it works only if a user is logged on to the server which is not always the case.
The GPO is configured to "Download and schedule an install" the updates for a specific day of the week, but i want to disable the restart that is automatically happening after installation.
