Moving from WSUS to SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently using WSUS and have had SCCM running in parallel for software deployment for some time. I'm now looking at moving to SCCM for MS patches but have a question about reboots. I have searched the forum but see alot of different answers so I thought I'd try my own.

    In WSUS I have the GPO setup so that if a user is logged in the patches will install but it "WILL NOT" reboot the users computer but will give them the nag popup until they do. I setup a few test computers and attempted to replicate this behavior. I removed the WSUS server from the GPO and kept the settings below.

    GPO settings for the test computers:

    Enabled - Do not display 'Install Updates and Shutdown'......

    Enabled - Do not adjust default option to 'Install Updates and Shutdown ' in Shut Down Windows dialog box

    Disabled - Reschedule Automatic updates scheduled installations

    Enabled - No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations

     

    As you guessed all of my test computers rebooted.

    My question......Can SCCM install patches the WSUS did? Meaning install the patches but do not reboot if the user is logged in. If the user is logged in nag them to reboot.

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    With ConfigMgr. you can suppress reboots but not based on the user logged on scenario.

  • As kent said SCCM will either reboot or suppress the reboot. It' won't do an action based on whether there's a logged in user.
