    Group Policy - Windows Update issue


    Hi, I work for a university and we have our own WSUS server. My GPO gets the Windows Updates from this WSUS. Some of our computers download and install the updates but some of them need to be manually started to Download or Install. Please see the attached screenshots. I am also attaching the part of the GPO that details the instructions. It says "Download" It says "Install" Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Couldn't connect to windows group policy service????

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing as with error: Couldn't connect to windows group policy service, we will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know when exactly you received this error code?

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted user profile, User Profile Service or Group Policy Client service stopped working, or Antivirus software conflicts.

    I suggest you to check with the following and check if it helps.

    Group Policy Client service, this service is responsible for applying settings configured by administrators for the computers and users through the Group Policy component. If the service is disabled
    the settings will be applied and applications and components will not be manageable through Group Policy.

    Step 1: Stop the Group Policy Client service.

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Stop.
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Start
    the service and set it to Automatic:

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Properties.
    • Start the service, set
      Startup type to Automatic.

    GROUP POLICIES IN WINDOWS 10

    You can change Group Policies by opening Group Policy Editor first. You can open it by following these steps:

    • Log in an administrator account. If you are already logged in as an administrator, proceed to step 2.
    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    After opening Group Policy Editor, you can now make the necessary changes that you want.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.

    Group Policy - Windows Update issue

    Windows Domain Group Policy

    The computers are fairly old and redirecting to the server is better. I forced group policy too update. I ended up figuring out the problem it was a permissions issue... imagine that. But I am having other problems such has setting the local administrator password, and I want to create some shortcuts on the desktop for all the users. Edit: it misdirects but now I cant write in the folder.. : /

    Ok now I have that issue fixed *Big Grin Group Policy - Windows Update issue :D But still am having other issues with loading the other group policy problems
