Windows Update – Don’t be restartin’
I’ve started to use my Hyper-V machine to host my development server which I remote in to. It works great assuming I can actually remote to it (and not blocked by firewall policies).
What is really nice is I can leave it on all the time, so my windows are where I left them. That is, until Windows Update graciously restarts it for me.
I don’t mind it automatically updating, but do you really have to restart?
This can be disabled through group policy though.
Edit your group policy and navigate to:
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update
Modify “No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic update installations”
