How to disable automatic updates in Windows server 2016?

1.You can simply disable the service “Windows Update” by going to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services (shortcut would be “services.msc” in the run prompt) or put it into manual mode and stop the service.

When you want to run Windows Updates, simply Enable / Start the service and do the updates manually

2.The other is using GPO control

1>. Disable automatic update through GPO.

If you choose to Disable it then tou dont need to worry about the second step.

2>. Configure it to not automatically restart through Gpo or settings > update and security.

What is the advantage of Hyper-V for Windows Server 2016?

  • Hyper-V allows you to run multiple Operating Systems at the same time on one computer.
  • It allows you to rapidly take “snapshots” of the operating system so you can easily restore it to exactly how it was at that time.
  • It allows you to migrate the operating system to another computer by copying a few files.
  • The latest features, performance, security and stability and software compatibility.
  • More time before you exit support.
  • Small jump to the next platform, incremental update risk is much lower than the big platform.

How can I give the permission to a user to install software in an AD on the PCs without giving him any other higher permission (Windows Server 2016)?

  • Dependent user’s permissions have been set… If the permissions are sufficient to install the software, it’s fine. Otherwise, by using, for example, an unattended installation. The task scheduler runs on another account with the correct permissions, or it uses sccm-like task scheduler (which uses services running on accounts with the correct permissions). Also, if this does not work, add special user rights or add users to the group for a limited time during the installation. If you need to let the user install the software on his/her specific user account and he/she needs special user rights, then you cannot do this without this permission… So either use the above solution The plan … or I think this is not feasible.
