Restarting client computers from Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

You need to restart client computers after you install the client software. By default, the client computers restart automatically after installation.

You can configure the restart options on a group to control how the client computers restart after a security risk remediation or a new client download. You can also restart the client computers at any time by running a restart command from the management server. You have the option to schedule the client computers to restart during a time that is convenient for users. You can force an immediate restart, or give the users an option to delay.

To configure restart options on client computers

  1. In the console, click Clients.

  2. On the Clients page, select a group, and then click Policies.

  3. On the Policies tab, click General Settings.

  4. In the General Settings dialog box, on the Restart Settings tab, select the restart method and schedule.

    Some restart options apply only to Windows clients. For details, see the context-sensitive help.

    You can also add a notification that appears on the client computer before the restart occurs. The default message tells the user that a security risk remediation or a new content download requires a restart. 

  5. Click OK.
