Maintenance Windows issue

Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

I think I did not manage to work with maintenance windows and I have some questions :

 

- Why am I seeing software updates in the software center during a maintenance window ?

- Why can I still install updates from the software center during a MW ?

- Is there a way to make a software update available only during the MW ?

The whole idea of using maintenance windows is to only install automatically during those windows. Depending on the configuration it's can still be possible to install the updates manually via Software Center, when available.

Some types of updates can install outside maintenance windows, such as Forefront Definition updates. At least, thats my understanding. Otherwise machines could go a month or more before updating antimalware definitions.

It's all about the deployment and how you'd configure its setting to adhere to the configured maintenance window. The deployment deadline also plays a huge role in a successful configuration.
