This article describes troubleshooting for Windows Update policy issues.
- Datto RMM
If you are having issues with the policy governing Windows updates, follow these troubleshooting steps:
Review policy settings against device registry options
Verify that the registry keys do not match the settings in the Windows Update Policy.
Verify the device does not have conflicting GPO
GPOs that perform similar functions may conflict with Datto RMM.
Re-push the policy and see if registry changes accordingly
Re-applying a policy refreshes Datto RMM's policy information against our databases and triggers the agent to request new policy information. Wait a few minutes and see if the registry changed.
Audit the device and see if the registry changes accordingly
Auditing the device triggers it to gather policy information from our servers. Once this is done see if the registry changed.
Test by manually changing problem registry keys
Rule out that perhaps the registry keys are being changed and are reverting back or they cannot be changed altogether.
Gather as much of the following information as possible before contacting Datto RMM Support:
- The date and time the issue occurred
- UIDs of affected devices
- Names and IDs of affected policies
- A screenshot of your registry settings
- AEM Service Log files (click here to learn how to gather the log files)
- Windows Event Logs in .evtx format
