Windows Server 2012 domain admin cannot change windows update settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Running Windows Server 2012r2 and I am a domain admin.  In windows update settings I do not have the option "never check for updates".   "Some settings are managed by your system administrator."   I need to set updates to never check. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
