Configuration options for updating operating system friendship dating 3
After that, we need to apply the configuration options we made to the local group policy with the gpupdate command, as seen in the picture below.We can see that the computer policy was successfully updated.Introduction Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) can be used to manage the deployment of the latest Microsoft Windows operating system updates.When using WSUS, we can fully manage the distribution of updates within the network, we can download software updates from Microsoft, and we can deploy them to computers in our own network .One great function of WSUS is the “E-Mail Notification” system, which can be used to automatically send email when new updates are synchronized.The settings can be seen below; they are disabled by default, but we can very easily enable them and fill out the email server settings in the “E-Mail Server” tab.The installation procedure for WSUS differs quite a lot, depending on whether we’re installing it on Windows Server 2003 or 2008: This will download the WSUS and install all appropriate roles/services, so we don’t need to download WSUS or install “Web Server (IIS)” role manually; this will all be done automatically.

If you’re unsure whether you need this option or not, keep the default option to synchronize all languages and you’ll be able to update all computers in your network. Under “Synchronization Schedule,” we can select to download the updates automatically every night at 2AM, as seen below.
Under the “Classification” tab, we can select the update classifications that we want to obtain.
