Here in our environment we are facing a typical problem.
We are using bladelogic patch management module to install microsoft security patches on Win 2K servers. Some time it happens 1 or 2 windows servers are getting rebooted. During the build of the package we have selected "Ignore item defined reboot setting" in the job options.
My question is
1. Why the servers are getting rebooted whereas we selected that particular option?
2. What is the way to prevent hte severs from rebooting after the patch installations.
We are using BMC Bladelogic Configuration Manager version 7.6
The target servers are Windows 2000 servers.
Did you identified the patches that made your server to reboot? If so, could you check if the manual install of those patches doesn't make the machine to reboot without notification?
If there is no kind of this issue, then regarding how you defined your job, reboots should not happen so you may open a case.
