Disable automatic updates via a domain group policy to prevent the WUA from 
doing anything autonomously.

Subject: [mssms] Windows Updates through SCCM

I have setup Windows 10 computers to update through SCCM instead of WSUS and so 
far it's going good.  We specify a deadline with a 2 hour reboot timer.

Last month we ran into an issue with some computers that failed to install the 
cumulative update.  The deadline in the deployment was reached, SCCM installed 
the CU and rebooted and then the update failed and was rolled back.  The next 
day, Windows, not SCCM, retried the failed CU install.   Then Windows prompted 
for a reboot with only a 30 minute timer.

I'd like to see what others have done for this scenario as a 30 minute reboot 
window is not good at all.
Is this normal behavior for Windows to retry failed updates instead of SCCM?
Is there anything we can do to stop Windows from retrying failed updates and 
let SCCM do it?  If not, will enabling the GPO policy for no auto-restart with 
logged on user interfere with SCCM auto reboot client settings?
