Cancel scheduled reboot

Created: 18 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

I did a SEP upgrade on a server to the latest version 12.1.2015.2015.

After upgrade a message is displayed that my server need to reboot.
If I do not reboot now, reboot is forced after 12 hours.
What? How can you set that reboot i forced as default?? Is there a way to cancel a schedule reboot?

I used the downloadable version from Symantec fileconnect.

So in your case, the installation has been completed and the SEP is asking for reboot, correct??

I am sure that is not possible to remove the Reboot option after the installation completed, infact this settings needs to be performed before the installation starts inside the package as these settings go to msi installer.

However, check this Thread:

Hope that helps!!

Login to SEPM

Go to the Clients page

Select the group your server is in

Select the Policies tab at the top

Under Settings select General Settings

On the Restart Settings tab, what is set here? You may need to adjust this to fit your needs
