  • windows updates are grayed out

    i have WSUS 3.0 running on my sbs with OS - windows 2003 server.

    Yester day my server rebooted on it self as the windows updates were set to download and install updates everyday 6:00 am.
    When went for changing that I found all options grayed out. Can some one help me change it or if you could letme know how to set it to "download updates for me, and let me choose when to install"

    It is really urgent.
    Thanks in advance

    Normally with WSUS the Windows Updates options are configured by Group Policy rather than manually, that would be consistent with the options being greyed out. Have a look at the policy settings and change what machines the policy applies to if necessary.

      Default for server(s) is to download and NOT install. Did you change it?
      TIA
