We've got an update for you - Windows 10 Notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have started pushing updates to Windows 10 Pro computers via WSUS2016. The majority are version 1809.  The client computers are getting the notification below:

    If I click 'Another time' this postpones the notification for 2 hours.

    Questions:

    1. Does anyone know what GPO setting is responsible for this notification?
    2. Will clicking 'Restart Now' restart the computer?
    3. What will clicking 'OK' do?
    4. Will the computer eventually force a restart if the user keeps clicking 'Another time'?  Is there a limited number of times they can postpone the installation - can you specify in a GPO Setting?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Hi,
      

    Analysis one by one:
       

    1. "Specify Engaged restart transition and notification schedule for updates"
      (Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update\)
    2. In theory, clicking "Restart Now" will restart the computer as soon as possible.
    3. As the picture shows, the computer will restart at 2:06 PM.
    4. "Specify Engaged restart transition and notification schedule for updates" policy requirements, if you do not specify a deadline or if the deadline is set to 0, the PC won´t automatically restart and will require the person to schedule it prior to restart.
         

    Hope the above can help you.

    Thanks for the feedback. 

    1. I do not have "Specify Engaged restart transition and notification schedule for updates" enabled or configured.
    2. I tested and the 'Restart Now' option will restart the computer.
    3. The computer does not restart if left alone past 2:06pm... It does nothing.  I do not have a deadline configured either.
    4. Clicking 'Another time' postpones the restart and the notification pops up 2-3 hours after.
    5. 'OK' appears to do nothing - same as clicking 'Another time'

    I am just confused as to the difference between the 'OK' and 'Another time' options?  Are they supposed to do difference things?
