This applet (see Figure 7-34) enables you to specify how or if the server uses the Automatic Updates feature. In most situations, you will likely not use automatic updates for a server because of the need to test and validate updates prior to rollout. You can use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) in conjunction with Group Policy to carefully control how and when automatic updates are deployed to servers and client systems. See www.microsoft.com/ technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/featured/wsus/default. mspx for details on WSUS.
