you can create a custom CIR to read the registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\AUOptions

0 : Auto updates are enabled and the downloaded updates will be installed immediately.

1 :  Automatic updates feature will be disabled. Windows will not check if there are any new updates for installation. However, users can manually initiate update.

2 : Check for updates, do not download them until user says so.

3 : Download the updates but do not install.

Is *nobody* able to think laterally these days?

How did I find this? I looked for a script that would turn automatic updates on/off. From there, it's a simple step to creating a script to test the value of the Automatic Updates object's NotificationLevel property. I can't help with creating the report, however, since I'm not a Kace user but now you can at least get the list of machines in a script.

    I did think laterally. I used you to get the info for me. Thank you.
    • Should that not be "Lazily" rather than "Laterally" ?
