Shut Down option in Patch Mgmt/Configure/Reboot Action menu

  • We would like to see "Shut Down" added as an option in Reboot Action, so that after Automatic Updates happen, the computer will shut itself down. I understand that a patch scan takes place normally after the reboot, so perhaps the "Shut Down" option would reboot, scan, THEN shut down.

    As an alternative, perhaps more flexible, add an option to run any script after Automatic Update, just like Initial Update can.

  • Count me in in this one as well. People would like to be more "green", let us power their PC's up at night for patching and then shut them down.

  • Agreed, we are already using a shutdown script but can only estimate on how long the patch management will take. If you shutdown too early, the update process will "continue" the next morning and start rebooting the clients workstations.
