We need a feature that prompts users that an update needs to be done but NOT automatically reboot after a certain amount of time. A number of clients have asked for this feature since we can't have machines doing CAD workloads.
We would like to be able to configure a script for patch and reboot window, instead of creating a separate scheduled task.
The idea is to be able to run a certain shutdown script anywhere in the PM Window when required.
This would be only for PM reboot window and installation window.
In the Patch Reboot Schedule, there is an option to "place device in downtime during reboot" however it doesn't actually do anything useful. The expectation is that this would put the device into maintenance mode for the duration of that reboot so that all alerts would be suppressed. Instead, it just disconnects the agent (which happens anyhow) and I get hammered with alerts because the server is offline (like DUH). ...more »
There's two parts to this feature request. I want a new type of Reboot Maintenance Window added (or add an option to the existing Scheduled Reboot Maintenance Window). This reboot would only occur if Reboot Required is true; otherwise its options would resemble the existing reboot maintenance windows. Use case here is different devices or clients have different acceptable windows to restart systems. Having the Reboot ...more »
At the moment when a restart is issued by the patchmanagement the logged in user of the device is only receiving a short message that his device will be rebooted but if he is not familiar with CMD commands he cannot stop the shutdown command and has not enough time to finish what he is doing / working on. It would be great improvement in regards to the user experience if the user on the device would get an actual dialog ...more »
The inbuilt ability to have reboot aware tasks ie resume running after a reboot is performed
Currently when an update is applied that requires a reboot the options are to reboot "Always", "Never", or "when required'. Certainly we want to schedule the machines to reboot when an update is required. However, if a machine misses the scheduled update and then the reboot is required during a clients workday. - there are no options to delay or cancel the update and not enough time given for the user to finish important ...more »
We are patching client systems with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Our customers don’t want an automatic reboot after patching. Normally they shut down their clients after work. As with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 the computers not really shut down anymore, but a reboot after patching is required, the reboot is outstanding until the users get informed about the required reboot. I think it would be nice to have a trigger for ...more »
When rebooting a device, the Reboot now function adds a delay of 5 minutes. Please modify this so that now means now i.e. if I select reboot now, the command should be issued as soon as the agent receives the command. If you'd like to add an optional selection for a 5 minute delay or an optional box to select your own delay or even revamp the entire dialog box into a reboot with a selectable delay (default of 0) or ...more »
Can we get a check that verifies how long since the servers last reboot, and gives us the ability to customize how many days since the last boot before the check fails? Personally I'd like to know how many of my servers haven't been rebooted in the last 30/60/90 days so I can make sure they get rebooted.
