Windows Automatic Update AND Templates

  • Hi KGuys.

    Is it in anyway (Template, Scripts, ...) possible to DEACTIVATE Windows Automatic Update on each client created with a specific template?



  • Hi Kai,

    Should be possible with a script, but not with Patch Management > Windows Auto Update. That can only be used against an agent that has run a patch scan.

    I've not tried to script it, but to start out, try checking out the registry key/reg add function below, this could work for you on at least XP/2k3.

    Disable windows auto update shell command:

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f  

  • Hi Josh.

    That sounds great. Thanks!
