    MBSDK reboot task?

    jackhorner Rookie

      Is there a way to create a reboot task using the MBSDK?


      thanks in advance!

          I'd do it as scheduled package -- all you need is a task / package which either calls poweroff.exe (our binary) or Windows' own shutdown command ... and schedule that package/task against the device(s) in question.


          There isn't a "just reboot" type action (in the same way that you'd have in a "right-click" context menu in the console).


          The package/bundle & task approach would also allow you to be bitness-agnostic (so you could have a 32-bit package, a 64-bit package) and such if needed.

            Thanks for the quick response!  Would there be any similar operation with ldapi by chance or any other epm API?

              If it's an IPMI enabled system (usually server hardware), you can run a reboot with the LDAPI via the Watchdog timer (not sure how "clean" or "gentle" that reboot is, since it's coming in via IPMI - effectively "the hardware").


              Other than that - there's methods for software distribution tasks (i.e. "use this reboot setting") -- but not a "just do a reboot and that's it".


              So the way to do that is either via custom script / package & schedule that task against that device / list of devices ... either via MBSDK or LDAPI.

                As an addendum - if you want a specific "just reboot a/several box(-es)" method, that'd be an ER you can file here -  Enhancement Requests - for consideration in the LDAPI.
