Windows server 2016 rds connected to WSUS

Hi 

At a customer we have a windows server 2016 RDS connected to a WSUS.

We want to disable automatic updates for that server. We want to install it manually.

So i diabled the automatic updates policy. And i've run SCONFIG en set it to Manual.

Appearently this does not work. Server did an reboot yesterday caused by installed updates.

 Does anyone have a validated procedure on how to disbale this?

Try setting;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

NoAutoUpdate = 1 (reg_dword)

Might try clearing out and start over. Delete the entire registry key HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate
then restart Windows Update service which will revert the WUAgent to the original installed behavior of Automatic Updates and then set the desired behavior usign the Control Panel | Windows Update
