Hi all,

We have been upgrading our patch management agents to version, and now we are seeing that workstations aren't rebooting when they are supposed to during deployments. For instance, we send out a long Q-chain of Microsoft patches, and after the last one the workstation just sits there. (The server lists the workstation as "idle" and says that it needs a reboot before any more deployments.)

But, to make it weirder, sometimes you can restart the agent from the Control Panel and then the countdown timer starts (but sometimes not). Or, you log into the machine and the timer starts (or not). Or, you initiate a reboot of the machine by another method and the countdown timer pops up just before the machine shuts down.

Has anyone else seen this sort of behavior? Is this a known issue? Any suggestions?

Thanks very much,
- Steve
