Is Solarwinds or our server pushing MS updates?

Last Modified: 2020-01-22
We use SolwarWinds software to push microsoft updates and patches to computers in the network.  It is set at 3am each night to check and install.  I have a few computers where a message comes up that says "your IT admin has initiated and update you have 2 minutes before reboot."  Something like that.  Is this message coming from the SolwarWinds software and initiating the update or from Group Policy or AD?
