    So the software checks for updates every two days.  How does the background updating work?

    Does it install automatically if there are no sessions?  What if there is?

    Does it delay a few days after download?

    The NoMachine software by default fetches our repositories every two days but updates are never installed automatically.

    To disable the automatic check or change the update frequency, please refer to instructions at:

    Is there a way (besides out of band software management) to make it auto install?

    The one thing I see going against this is the prompt for install of device drivers.

    No big deal.  Just was looking at this because every time I get prompted to update a server, I am logging in to do something important, so updates get delayed often.

    Thanks for the answer!!!!

    No, there isn’t. By design updates can be downloaded in background  (it’s option “Download updates in background” in Updates panel in the UI) but they will be not installed automatically. User will have to start manually the update process.

    To avoid pop-up messages you could disable ‘Automatically check for updates ‘ in the Updates panel and run ‘Check now’ at your own convenience.
