This week at Microsoft Inspire we announced that Scheduled Agent Updates on Azure Virtual Desktop is now Generally Available!


This feature gives IT admins control over when the Azure Virtual Desktop agent, side-by-side stack, and Geneva Monitoring agent get updated. You can specify the time of day you want to update the Azure Virtual Desktop agent. You can schedule agents to be deployed at convenient times such as outside peak business hours so that business critical work and end user productivity is not interrupted.


To enable this feature in the Azure Portal, simply select the Scheduled Agent Updates tab for your host pool, check the box to enable Scheduled Agent Updates, enter your desired maintenance window and time zone setting, and select Apply. 



You can also enable Scheduled Agent Updates using REST API. Support for enabling this feature using PowerShell will come in the following months.
