Machines not rebooted even supress reboot option is not enabled after patch deployment
I have set manadatory (required) patch deployment 15 days back to 10000 machines without suppressing reboot
But, we have found around 500 machines are pending from reboot from more than a week
Our reboot client setting is set to 3 Hrs
Please help me in sorting why these machines not rebooted automatically

Both Anoop and Jitesh have provided some valuable info.
For your servers, I hope you are using Maintenance Windows. If you are and if your MWs are less than the 3 hour reboot time, then they are likely not going to happen. Create a new Client Setting for your server collections with a much shorter reboot time, like 15 minutes.
First thing I shall check maintenance window setting and RebootCoordinator.log
Can you check the policy in the registry
0: disable automatic reboot after update installation at scheduled time
1: enable automatic reboot after update installation at ascheduled time
15-180: set automatic reboot to occur after given minutes
2: notify for download and notify for installation of updates
3: automatically download and notify for installation of updates
4: Automatically download and schedule installation of updates
5: allow the local admin to configure these settings
Note: To configure restart behavior, set this value to 4
0: disable do not reboot if users are logged on
1: do not reboot after an update installation if a user is logged on
Note: If disabled : Automatic Updates will notify the user that the computer will automatically restart in 5 minutes to complete the installation

Hello Kapil, As you already updated you haven’t suppressed reboot.
-Hopefully you already verified the client Restart Settings, checked User Experiences > Device restart behavior.
– Validate if there’s any overlapping settings are not applied to machines.
– Analyse RebootCoordinator.log
