auto reboot managed servers, checking managed server disk spaces, auto restart application services
My company has been planning to to have security updates installed on Windows SERVERS exclusively by Altiris (SMP 7.1). There are certain tasks we need to perform on managed servers before and after Altirls PM deployment start time:
(1) We must do initial restart to make sure the managed severs com back up on its own before applying any security patches. Can we schedule this initial restart by Altiris, say 1 hour, before Altiris PM deployment start time?
(2) We have many cases during Altiris PM beta test that failed the patch deployment because the managed Windows servers running low or out of disk spaces. Is there a way that we can check to see if disk space is enough before Altiris PM deployment start time?
(3) For certain third party application/software that we have to manually start/restart their servcies after server reboot. Can Altiris have a way to restart those servcies after server reboot?
Thank you very much,
