Software Update Cycle fails to install updates on Windows Vista/Server 2008/Windows 7/Windows 10 clients.
Last Updated April 24, 2018
Scheduled the Software Update Cycle within Patch Management Solution; found the Software Updates fail to install on Windows Vista, Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 10 computers.
Exit Code 1058
Windows Vista / Server 2008 / Windows 7 requires the 'Windows Software Update' service to be running.
Configure the 'Windows Update Service' to start 'Manual' or 'Automatically.'
Note: If it is set to Manual; the service will start and remain started until the computer is rebooted. Additionally, if set to Automatically on Windows 10 Clients; the Software Updates may install outside Patch Management Solution (process under review; ensure to test process before production deployment).
Warning: When the setting 'Automatically' is implemented; found the OS sometimes reboots the client following the Software Update Cycle. This is outside the Patch Management Solution control. Ensure testing is performed in the environment before deploying with this configuration within production.
