I run 40 something servers and i configured windows update to download but not install through GPO.
The problem is that the check seems to occur during working hours whereby on several servers the cpu rockets to 100% and memory goes up as well.
When i stop the service the server returns to almost no cpu usage and when i start it again cpu and memory go through the roof again.
I'm using an internal wsus server.

Is there a way to have the check run only at night?

Do you know another solution to get a grip on this problem.
