If the patches do NOT require a reboot, then there is no reason to stay
within the maintenance window. Apply the patches outside of the
maintenance window, but hold ALL reboots within the window.

I'm hoping that there's some sccm-klowledgable folks here

we're using sccm 2007 to patch servers during a maintenance window and
running into an issue; it appears that if the total time needed to
install the patches (m$ default seems to be 20 min per patch) exceeds
the size of the maintenance window then it simply installs nothing. It'd
be nice if we can get it to at least install some until the window
closes; 

i.e., 60 patches at 20min/patch = 20 hrs to install everything and the
window is 6 hours. We'd like for sccm to go ahead and install 18 patches
instead of none.

Any tips/tricks? know of a good sccm site/forum somewhere?

thanks
