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?

Solution:

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

This will prevent windows from rebooting.

By the way have you seen the RAVPower FileHub? It's a travel Router with wifi AC750 300Mbps Wi-Fi on 2.4Ghz or 433 Mbps on 5Ghz. It includes an SD Card Reader, 6700mAh Battery and can connect an SSD hd. Make this a portable NAS to store your pics and videos or upload your SD card pics/videos to a SSD hd. This is a bargain for under $60. (Amazon USA Link)
