Disable auto reboot after update on Windows Server 2016

Usually all servers need to be reboot mannually instead of do it automatically because we need to make sure all services are online after reboot. I cannot find Download only option on GUI Windows Update Settings on Windows Server 2016. But we can run command sconfig with admintrators privilege to change it.

  • Open command prompt window with admintrators privilege
  • Run sconfig
  • Select option 5
  • Choose (D)ownloadOnly
