How to configure 'Update and Shut Down' in Window Server 2019 Standard Active Directory?

TechQ 236 Reputation points

So I am planning to configure Window Update from Active Directory to Window 10 Pro Client Computer.

I am using WSUS to imply that window update. Every time I set the update I want client to receive 'update and shutdown' or 'update and restart'. In order to do this, what do I configure?

Please show me with pictures and some explanation, just don't give me Microsoft link to go over as its hard to understand. You can provide the link but please show me with picture for more understanding, thank you.

See picture below to understand what I mean: A1

    Here are the steps to configure update and restart or update and shutdown options using Group Policy:

    1. Open the Group Policy Management Console on your domain controller.
    2. Create a new Group Policy Object (GPO) or edit an existing one that applies to the Windows 10 Pro client computers.
    3. Navigate to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.
    4. Locate the "Configure Automatic Updates" policy and double-click it to open the policy settings.
    5. Select the "Enabled" option, then choose the update option you want to configure from the drop-down menu. In this case, you can choose either "4 - Auto download and schedule the install" or "3 - Auto download and notify for install."
    6. If you chose "4 - Auto download and schedule the install," then you can configure the "Scheduled install day" and "Scheduled install time" options to specify when you want the updates to be installed on the client computers.
    7. If you chose "3 - Auto download and notify for install," then you can configure the "Configure Automatic Updates" policy to enable the "Allow Automatic Updates immediate installation" option. This will give users the option to install updates and restart or shut down their computers.
    8. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the policy settings.
    9. Finally, link the GPO to the organizational unit (OU) containing the Windows 10 Pro client computers.

    Below you will find a link from Microsoft

    I hope I help.
