SCCM 2012 Server restarts

Hi Experts,
Our SCCM 2012 infrastructure comprises of the following

1 x SCCM primary site server
1 x SCCM reporting/SQL server
19 x DIstribuition Point servers

When we apply standard monthly microsoft security patches to these servers, what is the correct order to reboot the servers to ensure that everything in SCCM works post patch install, IE: do we reboot the SQL server first and then the primary site server,
If you can give me some advise in this regard it would be most appreciated

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Generally speaking it's best practice to ensure the SQL server is the last to go down and the first to come back online.

A similar question has been asked and answered on here previously, albeit it was for SCCM 2007:
