70-687 Configuring Windows 8.1 – sample exam – Q28

You manage client computers that run Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
You are configuring Windows updates for all client computers. You have the following requirements:
■ All client computers must use a specific Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server for updates.
■ All client computers must check for updates each hour.
You need to configure local Group Policy settings to meet the requirements.
Which three actions should you perform? (Each answer presents part of the solution. Choose three.)

A. Configure the Automatic Maintenance Activation Boundary policy setting.
B. Configure the Automatic Updates detection frequency policy setting.
C. Enable the Specify intranet Microsoft update service location policy setting.
D. Enable the Configure Automatic Updates policy setting for automatic download and scheduled installation.
E. Enable the Reschedule Automatic Updates scheduled installations policy setting.

Correct Answer: BCD

Explanation: Step 5: Configure Group Policy Settings for Automatic Updates
Automatic Updates detection frequency
Specifies the hours that Windows will use to determine how long to wait before checking for available up¬dates. The exact wait time is determined by using the hours specified here minus zero to twenty percent of the hours specified. For example, if this policy is used to specify a 20 hour detection frequency, all clients to which this policy is applied will check for updates anywhere between 16 and 20 hours. Note: The “Specify intranet Microsoft update service location” setting must be enabled for this policy to have effect.
Specify intranet Microsoft update service location
Specifies an intranet server to host updates from Microsoft Update. You can then use WSUS to automati¬cally update computers on your network.
Configure Automatic Updates
Specifies specify whether automatic updates are enabled on this computer. Further Information: Step 5: Configure Group Policy Settings for Automatic Updates
Automatic Maintenance Activation Boundary
Starting Windows 8, you can set updates to install during automatic maintenance instead of using a spe¬cific schedule tied to Windows Update. Automatic maintenance will install updates when the computer is not in use, and avoid installing updates when the computer is running on battery power. If automatic maintenance is unable to install updates within days, Windows Update will install updates right away. Users will then be notified about a pending restart. A pending restart will only take place if there is no po- tential for accidental data loss.
Reschedule Automatic Updates scheduled installations
Specifies the amount of time for Automatic Updates to wait following a computer startup, before proceed¬ing with a scheduled installation that was previously missed. If the status is set to Not Configured, a missed scheduled installation will occur one minute after the com- puter is next started.
