Windows Server 2012 - Auto Updates - registry Key Locatin

Server 2012 specific - I am looking to find the registry key that sets whether or not auto updates are on or off.  I have a script that runs on my customers servers to see if it is on or off.  This works great on 2003/2008, but 2012 the key/service seems to have changed

I have Google'd around, and everything talks about WSUS, but I don't have these registry keys.  A search of the stated wsus image/keys returns nothing.

The registry key is the same but doesn't exist in 2012 until Automatic Updates has been enabled by policy, either local or group. So if the key isn't there it isn't being configured for UA by group policy, but it may have been manually set. I'll dig a little to see if there's a registry setting for manual configuration, but it might not have a registry setting.

Ahh, thanks.  That might be enough.  I just need to identify if it is on or not, so that may work (No Key=off)
