Configure update services to allow users to install updates with prompt

    Question

  • Good morning everyone, I am trying to configure my update services to allow user to install updates on their computer. I have it set now where they already have access to the restart button but I would like to configure it to have the Yellow triangle next to restart button showing that there are updates that need to be installed. I would like to do this via GPO, Can anyone point me in that direction?

    Set up the following GPO:

    1. Select Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.
    2. Edit Configure Automatic Updates and specify as required.
    3. Edit Specify intranet Microsoft update service location if required.
    4. Edit Automatic Updates detection frequency as required.
    5. Enable Turn on recommended updates via Automatic Updates.
    6. Enable No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installation.
    7. Enable and specify client side targeting if required.

    Hope the above helps.

  • Hi Richardlaw,

    Thanks for your post.

    To clarify, what you want to do is that the user will get notify when there are updates is available and user can control the restart, right?

    If yes, you could configure the setting Configure Automatic Updates to achieve your goal.

    For more information, you could refer to the article below.

    Configure Automatic Updates by Using Group Policy

    In addition, the all setting about updates in GPO are under the path:

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update

    Best Regards,

    Jay
