NEED DSUW and PATCHINSTALL.EXE to prompt for reboot EVERY time

08/15/2006 3918 views
I am currently using the /n parameter with patchinstall.exe but that does not seem to cause the machines to prompt for a reboot each and everytime.
On some machines the user is seeing a prompt to restart now or later. I want this same prompt on all machines that require a reboot.
Some users are only getting an information bubble. This is clearly not annoying enough. Any help?

Just for your information, the only way to accomplish this is to configure automatic updates. We can do this without interfering with SMS patching becuase we use WSUS as a backup patch management system.

You may be able to trip AU by setting it to use an intranet server, but without entering an address.

Good luck!
