Can a deadline reboot a server with a no auto-reboot policy set?

    I have a couple of servers in my environment that installed an update
    and rebooted. This seems to be possibly due to a deadline being set on
    wsus. I was of the understanding that if a deadline was set on a
    machine that had the "download and notify for install" and the "no auto
    reboot" policies applied, that the machine wouldn't just install and
    reboot. I assume that this is incorrect. Can someone please verify?

  2. Hi,

    An install caused by an expired deadline will disregard both those
    settings, it will force an installation and then do a forced reboot.

    And a FYI:
