KB: Software Updates That Require Multiple Reboots may Cause Task Sequence Failure within Configuration Manager

KB533If a Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr 2007 or ConfigMgr 2012) Task Sequence that leverages the Install Software Updates step installs a software update that triggers multiple reboots, the task sequence may fail to complete successfully. This occurs because the first reboot initiated by the software update is properly controlled by the Task Sequence, however the second reboot request is initiated by a Windows component (typically Component-Based Servicing) and therefore not controlled by the Task Sequence.

For information on how to work around this issue please see the following:
