Windows 10 - Update and Restart VS Restart options

    Question

  • Hello,

    I just applied June monthly updates via SCCM 1702, when the updates were done installing, I noticed new options in the Power option : "Update and Restart" & "Update and Shutdown".

    We choosed "Restart" (only), but still the computer applied the updates. any idea why would it apply them even though we didn't select "Update and Restart" ?

    Thanks,

  • I think that this question would fit better in a Windows forum.

  • Hi,

        When I tested this in my Win10 1703 clients, there're only options "Update and Restart" & "Update and Shutdown"  appeared when I click Power button. If i launch a restart using commands "shutdown /r /f /t 00" it still applied the updates.

  • Here is what I get, and seems to be new since SCCM 1606

    Restart options for Windows 10 clients after software update installation

    When a software update that requires a restart is deployed by using Configuration Manager and is installed on a computer, a pending restart is scheduled. A restart dialog box is also displayed. Beginning in Configuration Manager version 1606, the options Update and Restart and Update and Shutdown are available whenever there is a pending restart for a Configuration Manager software update. These are available in the Windows power options of Windows 10 computers. After using one of these options, the restart dialog box will not display after the computer restarts.

    For details, see Plan for software updates in System Center Configuration Manager.

  • Hi,

        After testing in my lab (ConfigMgr 1702 with Win10 1703 clients) I can confirm that no matter what option you chosen (Shutdown, Restart) the updates will be applied. After restarting, the pending reboot notification will disappear.

    Hi,

        I'm not sure if it is a defect. You can request a support ticket with Microsoft CSS to confirm this. Thanks for your understanding.
