Forced Reboot Not Working

12/01/2017 1233 views
Has anyone come across instances where you create a patch label to force a reboot and the label says "Completed" on the inventory page but the server did not reboot? I have discovered about 10 of my server on forced reboot schedules have not been rebooting.

  • Did any of the deployed patches have the "reboot" flag set to "required" or were they all "none" ?

    I believe machines are only rebooted if "Force Reboot" is selected within the patch schedule AND one or more patches have the "reboot" flag set to "required".
  • When all else fails you can execute:
    Shutdown -r -f -t 0
