    Question about Automatic Updates


    Computers at my school always installing updates right after a user logged in. I have set scheduled time to 12 AM but i'm confused with Automatic Updates and AUOptions (don't know what it excatly called)

    If i disable Automatic Updates, and set AUOptions as "automatically download and scheduled installation", does it still update at scheduled time?

    Automated updates need to be enabled to bring the options into play. I assume you are doing this through Group Policy editor.

    Interesting that it still downloads with disabled on.

    So if automated updates is enabled, scheduled time will be useless?

    No. Turn on automatic updates and set the schedule.

    I believe in this sense it is just saying should I use automation or should I do it manually. You are saying use automation and in doing so use this schedule.
