Patch policies are restarting computers a lot in the patch window.
I have 12 servers being pushed 38 MS software bulletins (111 update packages). The default software update plug-in policies allow restarts at the end of the software update cycle, and the update policies allow immediate restarts, if required. The patch window is 4 hours long.
During the patching window, the servers in question restarted an awful lot. One server was sent 33 updates, and restarted 26 times. Another server restarted about a dozen times, was sent 2 updates, and at the end of the maintenance window was left in a state of needing to be restarted.
This doesn't seem like correct behavor. How do I set altiris to chain updates, so they servers don't have to restart between each update? How to I make sure they complete the final restart so at the end of the maintance window they are not left needing a reboot?
I'm running NS 7.1.
