Updates and rebooting

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Quick question guys.
So i am in a domain environment and windows update is managed through policy.
Meaning when I go to the control panels and windows updates it says "You receive updates: Managed by your system administrator" This Tuesday night i can not have my computer reboot. I do have full admin on my box. So would Turning off the Windows Update service stop the computer from downloading and updating and rebooting my machine?

I'd be afraid of it automatically being re-enabled due to the way it is managed. Can you talk with the system administrator to make sure that you are able to avoid rebooting on Tuesday? Maybe they can make a temporary change where you can wait until Wednesday.

hehe, well i am my system admin Thing is i am doing a huge crunch on my computer and cant reboot now either or i would have pulled my machine from the OU managing it. And that would have been that but i am in about a week on crunching some data. Wish i would have thought about the update reboot before i started so i am just trying to think about how to avoid it.
I have disabled it now and will see if it restarts the service in the next few days.

Then what about just changing the Windows Update settings so that it just doesn't check? Or, so that it checks, but lets you decide whether to download them. I didn't say this before because I was assuming that you didn't have high enough privileges.

Because it is still managed by the domain. For me to unmanage it by the domain, i would have to have a group policy update. Which would require a log off or reboot. And i cant do either of those currently. So i want to break it without changing policy.

Oh damn. Then I guess the only option really is to disable it and see how it goes.

Change the Windows Update setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them".
