Update Settings resetting after sysprep is run?

I am trying to keep the settings i have for Microsoft update (update everyday, 11:00Am, check for other microsoft updates etc.) I have everything configured as i need it, and then i run sysprep and it resets all of those settings. Any ideas?

So it's not removing your installed updates, it's just resetting your "schedule"?

In your sysprep.inf You'll need something similar to this:

[GuiRunOnce]
Command0=C:\Temp\resetWSUSClient.bat

That bat file will hold certain settings or commands... however, yours will need registry modification so you'll need the .bat to point to a .reg file or run a vbs for those modifications.

You'll find some settings in this link that should help you.

Don't mind the WSUS specifics... unless you run WSUS server... Instead focus on the .reg section and registry keys for date/time

thanks for the reply. I was able to edit the settings using Group Policy Editor tool.

Ahh, didn't realize you were in a domain environment, happy updating.

Question for you: Any reason you're pulling updates during business hours?

Good question, i'm not sure why, but that is what our supervisors wanted. Still having issue keeping Microsoft Update setting saved. Now everything works except for the Microsoft update (other software products) has to be installed every time I sysprep? Why doesn't Microsoft allow Microsoft Update to be a stand alone installer? I have no idea how to keep settings from reverting back every time i sysprep. Could it be a cookies issue, or maybe i need to alter my sysprep xml?

I was under the impression that your group policy was handling that.

You may need to add the "gpupdate /force" into your startup script to engage the policy.

What are your GPO settings for windows update?
