Deploy Software Updates Wizard: Restart Settings Page

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

Use the Restart Settings page in the Configuration Manager 2007 Deploy Software Updates Wizard to configure system restart behavior when a software update installs on a client and requires a restart to complete, and when maintenance windows are configured.

ImportantImportant
Suppressing system restarts can be useful in server environments or in cases in which you do not want the computers that are installing the software updates to restart by default. However, forcing a system restart after software update installation ensures that updates fully complete, whereas suppressing post-installation restart requests can leave systems in an insecure state.

This page contains the elements as described in the following table.
