Updating group policy on windows 2016 - Ofuck member chat

When new updates are available, the user will receive a systray message.

New is a feature that allows you to configure Active hours and Restart options.Note that you can only see the new policy after you update the ADMX templates with the latest version for Windows 10 in the Policy Definitions folder on your Windows Server or in the Central Store.If you apply this policy to a Windows 10 1607 machine, the corresponding configuration in the local settings app won't change.The option, Never check for updates (not recommended), of previous Windows versions, can be configured by disabling the policy.Note: You can also configure these Windows Update settings with a little Power Shell script that I wrote.However, when I disabled the Automatic Updates via Group Policy, no downloads were shown.

With the help of the networking monitoring tool, I could see that Windows downloaded a couple of megabytes from Windows Update, but then stopped.

However, according to my tests, restarts will then be scheduled corresponding to the Group Policy, and the Active hours configuration in the Windows 10 settings will be ignored.

The Restart options can only be configured when a restart is scheduled.

Time to upgrade, first select all files from the folder that was created during the installation, and select the language folder as well, in my case just the English language (en-us), right-click and then Copy.

Go to the C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\domain.local|Policies\Policy Definitions on the Domain Controller and paste the files.

Although I could not find an official statement, it appears that these options have disappeared in Windows 10 1607.
