FCS - Automatic Updates RRS feed

  • Question


    We currently use WSUS and our clients are set to download, but not install.

    How can we set the clients to automatically update their FCS definitions, while not automatically installing other updates from WSUS? Is this possible?

  • Great question. Yes, you should be able to do this using the Group Policy setting:

    \Administrative Tools\Windows Components\Windows Update\Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation

    Specifies whether Automatic Updates should automatically install certain updates that neither interrupt Windows services nor restart Windows.

    If the status is set to Enabled, Automatic Updates will immediately install these updates once they are downloaded and ready to install.

    If the status is set to Disabled, such updates will not be installed immediately.

    Note: If the "Configure Automatic Updates" policy is disabled, this policy has no effect.

    FCS Definitions are created such that they fit into the immediately installable category.
