Hi All,

Very quick and simple question, the previous IT company i worked for, always turn off Automatic Updates for Windows Server.
Can someone explain to me whether it is a good idea or not and why would they have it turned off.

Thanks in advance,

It is the good idea.
Installation and rebooting must take place under the control of an administrator.
And there is highly desirable to test updates before installation in product system.
