Restart Control Behavior

If I patch without requiring a restart throughout the week, but then run a patch that requires a restart on Sunday, will I be ensured a restart if one is currently required?

Here’s my expectation.

If I patch servers overnight without requiring a restart, they will patch, but not restart. If a patch requires a restart the computer will be marked as needing a restart.
Then run a patch procedure that will restart on Saturday night. Because the computer was already flagged with needing a restart, the server will restart REGARDLESS of if a patch was installed Saturday night that requires a restart.

Is this correct?


@artichoke ,

That is correct. Create a Patch Schedule for your servers (select “suppress reboot”) Then you can add an additional schedule for checking if an endpoint require a reboot itself or not and schedule reboot
