SCCM – Computers with Pending Restart

Sometimes after patching a machine, you should restart the machine in order to apply the patch. You can create a query-based collection of machines with pending reboot in System Center Configuration Manager. Copy and paste the following query:

There are several other enforcement states you can use at the end of the query:
  • 1 – Enforcement started
  • 3 – Waiting for another installation to complete
  • 6 – General failure
  • 8 – Installing update
  • 9 – Pending system restart
  • 10 – Successfully installed update
  • 11 – Failed to install update
  • 12 – Downloading update
  • 13 – Downloaded update
