We would like to allow users to check online for Windows Updates when needed, even though KACE patch Management is in place.  Right now, they receive the error "Windows Update cannot check for updates, because updates on this computer are controlled by your system administrator."  Has anyone found a way around this?

  • Is there a GPO in place that restricts such behavior? Are your users local administrators?
  • The GPO disables Windows Updates from the Clients end. This enables the K1000 to take over Patch Management.
    • remove the GPO and either the user or the k1 can update the system, you do not need to disable this to allow patching to work.
  • Got it. Will this still block the patch to prompt to upgrade to Windows 10?
    • no but you can use the kbox to run this tool from GRC. You can also do into the registry and make these changes but this tool does it for you.
