Dear Experts,
I am using SCCM 2012 for installing Microsoft patches in our environment. I want to give users ability to postpone reboots after workstation patching. However, this should not be more than 3 times. The PC will have to reboot after postponing thrice. Please advise.
Thanks
RAM

In SCCM Client settings, we can define period for popup window which cannot be closed, this is much better than postpone as the main purpose of having SCCM and Windows Update is to keep client systems compliant. At some point user will have to restart their system.
Increase the 2nd value to 30-45 mins.

You can find it under Administrations/Client Settings there has to be a custom client settings that is being applied to device collection.

Thank you very much vaseem. I think that’s the closest I can get with what SCCM can give me.

One final query. I have only one ‘Default client settings’ in our environment which applies to both servers and workstations. I guess I need to create another ‘client settings’ and target to ‘workstation collection’.
Could you please point me to a  link that will help me do that.  Thank you.
