Best Practices Question
Dell updates rebooted computers even with a schedule set.
I am working in batches in my company to get our computers firmware up to date. We try not to cause any reboots during the day so I set up all the 3060's with an alert to those people that updates would be applied this evening between 7 and 8 and to make sure all documents were saved and to log out when they went home. Had a label set up for that model and all updates that were upgrades. Allowed the users to Ok/Snooze with the message what would be happening tonight and then a reboot now but had the Cron custom set to 0 19 15 8 4.
Got a call that computers (some) were rebooting now. What am I not getting? What is a better way to do this? Does the schedule part not matter? If an update requires a reboot, like a BIOS, does the system just overlook the schedule set?
