Using WSUS for reporting for servers & letting them download internally and not restart?

We currently have the following GPO set for servers:

with the following setting:

We would like the servers to download updates from our internal WSUS server, but not restart. We would just like WSUS to perform reporting on what servers need what updates.

Do we just need to specify the intranet Microsoft update location? These servers can not restart.

Yes you need to "specify the intranet Microsoft update location" in order for the servers to pickup updates from WSUS.

The option 3 you have selected is the recommended way. This allows you to log in during a maintenance time frame and manually install/reboot.
