Please look up this question that asked the same thing: rumID=47&threadID=142353

If you get a message saying the question has been withdrawn, just paste the URL a 2nd time and try again. YOu need to go to TR links like the above 2 times before they actually take you to the right page.

If you are running Active Directory, you can configure it there. Along with the SUS server software, you should have received a file called "wuau.adm".

In AD Users and Computers, edit or create the GPO that should assign this property. This GPO will be on the OU containing the computer accounts.

Go to "Computer Configuration", "Administrative Templates". Right-click on "Administrative Templates" and select "Add/Remove Templates". Click "Add" and browse to and select "wuau.adm".

Once this is done, under "Administrative Templates" you can go to "Windows Components" and "Windows Update".

In the right-hand window, you will find 4 options with various settings, from the server to access, to when to download, notify and/or install, whether to reboot automatically, reschedule missed updates etc.
