If an update installation requires a reboot then the updater should say so
I have repeatedly encountered the following scenario:
- I install an update, hotfix, or service pack on my Backup Exec 2012 media server.
- The installer announces it will stop the Backup Exec services and restart them when the update is done.
- The installer completes and all Backup Exec services are running again. Everything seems well.
- Next time I try to open the Backup Exec console an error message appears: "Backup Exec cannot be started because a request by the Backup Exec installation to restart the computer is outstanding."
Possible improvement: If the update requires a restart the installer should tell me so immediately instead of quietly waiting until I try to do something with the newly updated installation.
