How do I configure targeted machine group to get updates from Shavlik Protect 9 rather than getting updates from Microsoft Update?

In using Shavlik Protect 9, I can push patches to targeted server group/machines. However, when logging into the servers and validating if the servers receive patches when deployed from the Shavlik console, I noticed that the servers still show they are receiving updates from Microsoft (screen shot attached). How do I turn off this settings, and point the target machines to say they are managed by Shavlik or by Your Administrator? Although they are getting the patches that I've deployed from SHavlik when I look at the Updates history, but I no longer want them to receive updates from Microsoft.

Turn OFF Security Updates in the Control Panel.

Control Panel > Security Center > Windows Update > Change Settings > Never Check for Updates.

You cannot really, change the settings to state "getting updates from Shavlik or by your Administrator".

Shavlik Updates are Pushed to the Servers, based on your configuration.

We have Groups of Servers Setup, because different owners "own" different servers, and we have Reports which run Automatically, after Microsoft Patch Tuesday, which emails the Server Owners, of the Patches Required, this also emails the Service Desk Manager, to Authorise the Change Control to Apply the Patches.

These Patches are then Manually Deployed over night to the owners servers.

This is not WSUS, where the Server goes to the organisations own WSUS server, to obtain pre-approved udpates.

hanccocka,

How can i get notification from Microsoft to send to my email address when Microsoft release there critical patches on the second Tues of each month? Also, would like to subscribe so that Microsoft can send me any critical patches to fix any major vulnerability or any out-of-band patches. By the way, what does that mean (out-of-band patches) anyways? If you can guide me in the proper path, I would appreciate that.

An out-of-band patch, is a Microsoft patch which is released at any other time, than Patch Tuesday. often regarded as an emergency patch!
