WSUS updates and deadlines
Posted on 2016-10-17
I have a GP that sets my servers to check for updates every two hours and install them at 2AM each day.
Now I'm bringing deadlines into the mix.
So, tonight is Tuesday. If I approve updates tonight at 7PM, and my servers check in every two hours, and I set a deadline of this Friday at 2AM, will the updates install tonight at 2AM since my GP says they can, or will they wait for the deadline date before firing off?
I'm trying to determine if my 2AM daily will supersede the deadline. Of course, deadline means anytime before as well so I'm not sure how that would play out.
