  • The settings can be configured using the admin console -> Software Library -> Software Updates -> Software Update Groups -> Deplyoment tab -> Properties of the deployment -> User Experience tab.

  • It was in typo mistake in my question, It was not SrvMgr, It is ConfigManager 2012.(SCCM 2012),

    Here is my question again: We have PowerShell module which is using ConfigManager 2012.(SCCM 2012),for installing the Security Updates on Servers. Is there any option to Postpone the Server Reboot.

  • I don't know about power shell script that you're using. But in native configmgr 2012, we can suppress or postpone the reboot.

  • Thanks Anoop for your quick reply.

    Below is the PowerShell command we rae using for triggring the Software update deployment tasks on a computer.  here we want to suppress/postpone the reboot. Can you pls guid me how can we do this here...

    ##$policyID = "Software update Deployment action ID"## Connect to WMI
    $Computer = gwmi Win32_ComputerSystem
    $SMSClient = [wmiclass] ("\\"+$Computer.Name+"\ROOT\ccm:SMS_Client")
    $cmclient.TriggerSchedule($policyID)

  • That script just triggers an action on the client itself. The client then acts according to the deployment settings (and that's where you can configure the reboot behavior)

  • Thanks for the response Torsten.

    Now I have understood that we need to do the Deployment setting for reboot behavior.

    I have found below options in Software Center window. As I am very new to ConfigMgr 2012 , Can you point to to the exact location where we can make the reboot settings.
