Network, 25 users, Win 7 Pro on desktops, Win 2K8 R2 Server as the Domain Controller, AD, etc...
Need Help With:
I am trying to set up Group Policy to manage the windows updates on both servers and the desktops.
I would like the the desktops to update everyday at 3:00 a.m.
I would like the server to update only on Sunday morning at 3:00 a.m.
I would like to avoid modifying the default domain policy.
( Currently I am just trying to get the desktop policy to work, I will work on the server policy after that)
What has been done so far:
In AD create a security group called = WinUpdateComputers
In AD create an OU called = WinUpdateDesktops
In AD move the WinUpdateComputers into the WinUpdateDesktops OU
Open GP Management
Find OU called WinUpdateDesktops
Right Click - > Create and Link GP Here
Select policy configurations > Computer Config > Policyies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Updates
Select the Configure Updates Policy > Set it to use the schedule, Select 0 for everyday, set time as 3 a.m.
Close the policy screen
Select the policy you created Find Security Filtering (Bottom of Right Window)
Add the security group WinUpdateComputers
Run gpupdate /force
Reboot one of the desktops to test.
The policy does not seem to be applying to the desktop computers properly.
All users are local admins on their computers.
