Servers are automatically rebooting after patch applied

I need a solution

We recently upgraded to version 8.1.  When I released the MS patches this week a large number of my servers rebooted, even though the Restart settings indicate they should not force a restart.  What is odd is that it didn’t effect all of the servers that were patched.

When looking at the logs on a server that did reboot it indicated that the restart was requested by the NT Authortity and the reason was Application Managment (Planned).

Can someone give me some insight on why this happened?  Why it didn’t apply universally?  What I can do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again?
