Hello, I've setup scheduled tasks exactly as specified in the below post for updating separate groups of machines, Wednesday: Test Group 10am Friday: All workstations10am Friday: All servers 5am.
I've chosen the option to "Download and install all needed approved updates" this means the updates need to be manually approved by myself before they downloaded/deployed to the groups in my scheduled tasks. This is the desired behaviour as I'd like to view the updates and select them for approval before being deployed so I have a clear overview on all released patches.
This is all fine, however I have a problem that when I choose to "Approve" any needed update it prompts me to select a computer group and I have to choose a computer group before I can proceed with the approval. I don't want to choose a computer group as these have been set in the above scheduled tasks.
Am I missing something, is there a way around this?
