Ability to set a site-wide default Maximum Run time
I see that there is another similar post about this but rather than MS just simply increasing the default max run time for CU's, why not give admins the ability to set the default Max Run Time centrally?
The amount of time a patch takes to install is going to vary based on the type of hardware being used. Where one company might have hardware that can do it in 30mins, others might need more like 45 mins.
It makes more sense for a setting like this to be managed centrally by admins.

Yet again, had a CU fail on multiple servers due to the max run time being 10 minutes
This used to only matter for Service Packs, but now it seems to affect at least one CU each month
This month its KB4022715..
It's adding a lot of extra overhead - and delays if using maintenance windows to control reboots.
30min is not enough for hdd computers. I use 90min to be sure.
