Automatic update setting inconsistent across farm servers (SharePoint Foundation 2010)
Published: May 29, 2010
Rule Name: Automatic update setting inconsistent across farm servers
Summary: Servers in the SharePoint farm do not have the same Automatic Update settings configured.
Cause: One or more servers in the farm have Automatic Update settings that are different from the other servers in the farm.
Resolution: Ensure all servers in the farm have the same Automatic Update settings
Verify that you are a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.
Choose an Automatic Update setting that is consistent on each server on the farm. On each server in the farm, open the Automatic Update settings page and ensure the settings are configured according to the planned consistent setting.
Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
On the Windows Update Control Panel page, click Change settings.
On the Choose how Windows can install updates screen, make sure that the update settings are what you want. Change the update settings if necessary.
If you cannot change the update settings, the update settings may be locked because of group policy. If this is the case, ensure that the same group policy is being applied to other servers in the farm.
