Can you please confirm the items highlighted are set properly? Also, the Wake-Up device is LIMITED to just the assignment not as part of the regular schedule. The agent is not able to wake itself up if sleeping or powered off. I will run a few tests today to ensure this rule will respect those values and not wait for the logged on user to respond to the message box. I will respond again once I have completed my tests.
Good afternoon Steve, glad to see you weathered out the storm okay!
I have deferred reboot deselected, time before auto accept set to 0, and force reboot if client is checked.
You stated "The agent is not able to wake itself up if sleeping or powered off." Checking our power plan GPO I see that our displays are set to timeout after 10 minutes but sleep mode is set to never - the option for enable wake up calls is enabled however. Penny for your thoughts.
I tested and confirmed that if a user is logged on but device is LOCKED it will wait for user to sign back in and go through the message box before rebooting. I know this is not what you all need,
I created an Op Rule that has 6 steps that I believe will meet your needs. Please click on link below and download the XML file and run a couple of tests before deploying to all your devices... Keep me posted and let me know what you think!
Steve, you rock. I hope the document you created will assist any other BMC users with similar issues. My test ran successfully on 8/10 systems, only factor being the 2 systems were laptops that were turned off. Thank you again.:
Sidenote: Is this something that should be submitted as a suggestion for the wake-up call on locked devices to function?
