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?
