Let’s learn about the SCCM Maximum Run Time option available for Application. In the application maximum run time, you can specify the maximum number of minutes allotted for an application installation to complete before the installation is no longer monitored by Configuration Manager.
In the Maximum Run Time tab, set the maximum amount of time an application is allotted to complete the client computers. This setting is also used to determine whether there is enough available time to install the application before the end of a maintenance window.
If the installation takes longer than the maximum run-time value, Configuration Manager creates a status message and stops monitoring the deployment for the application installation after it reaches the maximum allowed run time.
In Configuration Manager, You can set Maximum Run Time when creating or edit the following –
- Software Update
- Task Sequences
How to Specify Maximum Run time for the Application
Follow the steps below to specify Maximum Runtime for Applications in SCCM–
In the Configuration Manager console, go to the Software Library workspace, expand Application Management, and select the Applications node.
Select an existing application in the Applications node and select Deployment Types tab. Right-click on the existing deployment type and select Properties.
Switch to the User Experience tab. Under Maximum allowed run time (minutes), Specify the maximum runtime of the deployment program for this application. By default, this option is set to 120 minutes (two hours)—Click Apply, and OK.
Maximum allowed run time (minutes): Specify the maximum time in minutes that you expect the deployment type to run on the client computer.
Important – A conflict might occur if the Maximum allowed run time is longer than the scheduled maintenance window. If the user sets the maximum run time to a period greater than any available maintenance window length, that deployment type doesn’t run.
