Automatic Updates - by group RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Can I configure automatic updates for a group only.... not for all computers.  I want to update client machines, but not servers automatically.

  • Yes you can. You can configure different "settings" for servers and clients by adding new GPO's with the right settings. If you want to split servers to multipple groups you can add security filers for the GPO's. As for approvals to the updates, you use the groups inside the SCE console to approve updates to the corresponding groups.

    If/when you add more GPO's, make sure the default SCE GPO doesn't have the "enforce" flag and then make sure the new GPO's applies last.
