Dear all

I have installed a WSUS server with Active Directory. I have enabled group policy in Windows Update

"No Auto-Restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations". But still windows

is restarting after installation of updates on clients and server itself . How to resolve this issue thanks.

Are you sure there was someone logged on the server when the reboot occurred. Did you set up in wsus a deadline when approving ?

The deadline setting isn't a deadline in the sense everyone would think. When you use the deadline setting the servers and computers will try to update at their programmed update or at the deadline (more often). Also the deadline setting remove all user approvals and other settings that might avoid the updates to be installed. In all case when a deadline is set the wsus client won't ask the logged on user for a reboot, it will do it forcefully.

So you shouldn't use the deadline setting if you don't want to reboot when a user is logged on.
