Wuauclt not updating

All these servers are fresh installs and they are in an OU that prevents them from restarting themselves after an update install and I am the only one who manually restarts them.Since they have been installed they have gotten 0 updates.If I run a report on one of the servers and I set the product filter to "Windows Server 2016" I get 31 updates installed or not applicable. The status for all of them is "Not Applicable" They are all Critical updates and Security Updates.

By default the BITS will only download an update when the network connection is not busy.

I think this will give the download process higher priority.

pulls up the windows update page now located in the settings panel to then manually click "check for updates".

The purpose of this being in a script of course to automate this process.

WSUS detects and sends updates to all systems, including the 2012 servers.
