Robust Windows Update
I would love to have the robustness available with NinjaRMM. When I take over Windows update, I don't want local WU to work AT ALL!
When selected all WU on local WKST/SRV = disabled.
I would like to see ability to force install of feature updates from the web console (i.e. 1903, 1909, 2004, 20H2...) as per attachment.
I would like to see ability to delay updates being installed when someone is logged in, until shift ends (8-12 hours).
Further, I would love to see the following 3 options:
1 - If user logged in - prompt to reboot then automatically reboot WKST after shift is complete.
2 - If no user is logged on, force an update at a specific time (local time).
3 - Force (only) options of "Update and Shutdown" or "Update and Restart" when the user attempts to log out at end of shift.
Additionally - update policies that differentiate between SERVER and WKST OSes would be even better! Request updating policies that specifically apply to SRV and WKST OSes.
It would also be good if you could force the Windows Update to the Online Windows update service and "override" the GPO.
I would prefer an option similar to seen in windows itself where the user can choose a delay time. Like delay for and the choose 5, 10, 20 minutes and then it would prompt again after the time requested. Allow a max of X number of delays.
No functionality that today exists built-in on windows (and don't leave out macOS and Linux while we're at it always implement in trio) can be left out. It should enhance upon it all.
The ability to set an exact time frame where it should auto-reboot to finish installing patches per device, hour, day, week and so on. Also a auto-reboot schedule for all servers - if they need to be rebooted in a specific order / chain.
Stop monitoring for these scenarios and time frames and start monitoring again when all is well - if not give alert.
And adhere to:
