You can follow this tutorial to change settings of Windows Update on Windows Server 2008:

1. Go to "Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update". You see the current update status of your Windows system.

2. Click on "Change settings" link on the left. You see the settings screen.

3. Change settings to be:

Important updates:
   [Install updates automatically (recommended)]
      Install new updates: Every day
