System Update 5.0 Group Policy Scheduler settings missing

2017-02-07, 14:57 PM

Hi,

I have applied the ADM file to my 2012 Active Directory. It puts it under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > ThinkVantage > System Update. The pdf guide says it's supposed to go: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > ThinkVantage > System Update. Either way, I only see Scheduler Lock under UserSettings > Scheduler. I am looking to use the ThinInstaller and Update Retriever to silently deploy updates. I'm not seeing anyone running into this on the forums.

 

Any clues? I just applied the ADM template to AD. It is the most current ADM template and I added it following the instructions.

UPDATE: I got the policy to show up under the regular Administrative Templates by adding the admx and adml to PolicyDefinitions folder. I am still unable to see anything else under Scheduler though.

 

UPDATE2: It seems that ThinInstaller does not work with the scheduler group policy. I'm ok with using the full System Update but still don't have all group policy settings for scheduling.

Hi, 

Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm running into the same thing where the scheduler group policy is not showing all of the options under Scheduler.

Thin installer does not use any registry entries, nor does it have a scheduler function.

The ADM template Lenovo supplies adds only the SchedulerLock entry to the GPO.

CATEGORY "UserSettings"
VALUENAME "SchedulerLock" ITEMLIST NAME "HIDE" VALUE "HIDE" DEFAULT NAME "SHOW" VALUE "SHOW"

Actual registry values are:

This setting enables you to show, hide, disable, or lock
the Schedule updates option in the System Update user
interface.
• If SHOW, the Schedule updates option is available in
the left navigation pane.
• If HIDE, the Schedule updates option is not visible
to the end user.
• If DISABLE, the Schedule updates option in the left
navigation pane is displayed but appears dimmed.
• If LOCK, the Schedule updates panel can be opened,
but the settings in it are disabled and cannot be changed.

Any setting/value NOT set in the GPO override uses the value in the registry. 

If you had all the scheduler overrides in the GPO, you will still have to enable the task scheduler option in SU to create the windows task scheduler entry.

 

Before windows 7, SU had its own TVSU task scheduler.

My theory is: If you are controlling updates on the machine, you would not want your user to run SU monthly updates via the windows task scheduler. Your vision might be different.

 

Registry entry:

 

 Note: The SU deployment guide was last updated in 2014.  It needs a new update.

Nice, thanks.  I was just making sure there wasn't an .admx file with the settings that I was missing.

 

Another question, are you then running the Admininistrator Command from the registery then under UserSettings\General?

When you run SU on a win pro system, with GPO, it uses the GPO values 1st.  If  value not found, it uses the registry value.  GPO always overrides registry.

Lenovo doc does not match ADM and ADMX.

Fussy. Me fussy . you fussy. no problem

It is China culture.  I had to drag culture vs Lenovo solutions, beauty and the beast, adm vs admx. I can not respond to the same question over and over across multiple posts, when i know LENOVO has a bug.

 

Ask LENOVO, Morrisville, NC how much they can disclose? Raleigh, NC, the same.

I have been to Morrisville and Raleigh many of times doing IBM simulations.

Your ADM, your ADMX, your Lenovo.
