Workstations rebooting multiple times after April 2013 K1000 patch deployment
I have noticed that approximately 50 systems have rebooted more than twice after April 2013 patches were deployed by KACE 1000. I have checked the patch logs and did not find anything abnormal. Is this a normal behavoir?

It depends on the patches being deployed and whether or not a reboot is required for them. My understanding is that Kace is trying to move towards a patching module more similar to how a WSUS would work in terms of the number of reboots required. The typical way that a schedule works in the K1 is that it will deploy until the first reboot is required instead of how a WSUS would work where it "stacks" the patches together to do one reboot that several patches need. A detect and deploy could easily cause several reboots but you do have the option in the schedule to change the reboot behavior to prompt the user, force reboot or no reboot.
