We have all been there…you receive a software update and continue to postpone the reboot as long as possible. When the reboot deadline hits you are still not ready to reboot. This leaves you with 2 options. You can either let the scheduled reboot take you to wonderland or follow these instructions and stop the reboot dead in it’s tracks.
- Open a command prompt and run shutdown /a. This cancels the shutdown commands initiated by the SMS Agent Host. You can rest easy knowing the SMS Agent only sends 1 reboot command per deployment deadline.
- Stop the SMS Agent Host service. This will close the SMS restart window that continues to nag you.
Have a great day!
