  • Hello Pratap,

    You can have a look at the Pending Reboot management pack:

    Server Pending Restart Monitoring - New SCOM Management Pack
    https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Server-Pending-Restart-New-2457a729

    The management pack provides alerting when certain conditions on the monitored server are detected and requires the server to be restarted.

    Or you can create a monitor based on a PowerShell script as described in the following thread:
    SCOM monitoring for pending restart state related to Windows Updates

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Did you check the PowerShell script method in the other thread I mentioned?

    There they create a two state monitor based on a PowerShell script that checks if pending reboot equals true/false.

  • Hi,

    It seems this is not achievable even if we created a monitor based on the script. Commonly, configurations manager uses SUG (software update group, which may contain one or more updates) and deploy to client computers. Assume we are using script-based monitor, how can we define which updates are installed completely? This varies among SUG.

    If we know which specific update is, for example, KBxxxx, we can write a script to query if it is installed and the pending restart = false to form a monitor.

    Hope the above information helps.

    Regards,
