Reboot Required Updates
We have been seeing alot of reboot required on our systems/servers in the environment, with a message that computer is not protected. I understand that updates do require an update from time to time to update the software on the systems, but confused about why we are seeing these so frequently? Is there a way to set groups to have the software schedule a reboot at a certain time for a group of computers and then prompt (with popup), or reboot on logoff for the others by default action (with the exception of servers). This is just making me worried that all of our systems are not protected, due to reliance on the users to do the reboot, or for us to catch it and push a reboot manually (which is very dangerous when dealing with viruses).
You should be able to send a reboot cmd when a reboot is needed. Especially when machines are at staffs home...
I know Symantec has this option.
A reboot is a process of restarting a working computer using hardware (e.g., a power button) instead of software. Rebooting is sometimes necessary after installing a software program, installing operating system updates, to recover from an error, or re-initialize drivers or hardware devices.
TO CLARIFY. REBOOT COMPUTER ON USER LOGOFF SET TO DEFAULT ACTION ON ANY SYSTEM NOT IN A CUSTOM GROUP WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SERVERS. A SCHEDULE FUNCTION FOR INDIVIDUAL CUSTOM GROUPS (FOLDERS) CREATED BY ADMINS.
