Prevent server 2016 from rebooting after windows updates

When installing an update on Server 2016 I get the message “Your device is scheduled to restart outside of active hours”.

How do I stop the server from rebooting?


If you look in Task Scheduler under UpdateOrchestrator you can rename/disable the reboot task.

This will prevent windows from rebooting.

Let me know if this fix worked for you?
