Introduction:

I am pushing out monthly Windows Update packages from Patch Management and I have production servers that cannot be rebooted. Since the reboot is hardcoded from Microsoft, how can I delay the reboot till I am to take these production servers offline?

Instructions:

In the properties of the DSM Job, enter NOREBOOT in the user parameters field as shown in the below screenshot. Additionally you will need select the NONE option for reboot after install. The Microsoft Roll-up will get pushed to the production server and will not be applied until after the machine is rebooted.
