An hour for a Maintenance Window is a bit short. With every update the client will calculate whether it can be installed during the window or not (based on max run time + countdown + = default of 35 minutes). So it's very well possible that the client ran out of its window. Either look in the reports or the update% log files.

Now i checked my Deployment Status, its in Unknown with "Client Check Passed /Active"


but im not receiving any updates , or anything, i tried to uninstall lot of update to check, ether its downloading update or not.


my mission is to install all the update 8pm to 9Pm every Friday. so i setup maintenance time on 8pm to 9Pm every friday

please advice, if i setup correctly .

Thank you
