How to turn off MS update checking in 2019

I have several new servers that have the BES client installed and they keep checking for MS updates. How do I turn this off and have them only look at Bigfix for updates and patches?

Thanks in advance,

Use the Local Group Policy Editor application, and navigate to Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Windows Updates.

In the list pane, disable the following settings:

  • Configure Automatic Updates
  • Automatic Updates detection frequency

This will keep the machines from updating themselves, even if they have internet access.


Thank you for the information. I will put it to good use!
