Warning! Reboot after automatic update of Endpoint protection

    Question

  • Tonight (during maintenance windows) all our servers were rebooted due to an automatic update of the Endpoint protection client. Microsoft automatically installs the update as part of the definition update rule. This update also reboots your server, so we had a lot of problems this morning (SQL cluster, Exchange cluster). I would recommend to suppress reboots in your definition updates rule!

  • If you suppress reboots doesn't that mean your server isn't secured with the newest definition and you would have to check manually whether each server requires a restart?

    No definition updates don't require a reboot. In this case suppressing the reboot only prevents rebooting after the System center endpoint client update (which is pushed together with de definition updates)
