Hi Guys

Happy Christmas

When completeing a SMS client pc install is it possible to make it login as an administrator and reboot the box at the end of the install?

Thanks Guys

RE: Newbie Question

for those updates that require a restart to take effect we force the reboot of the workstations.....

your systemm account and\or authorized account will perform this via your script.

RE: Newbie Question

The SMS client install does not require a restart.  If you run client.msi to install the client (which is what we do), you can use the windows install command line argument to force an install.  I believe it's Reboot="Force".  Just look up msi command lines arguments to be sure.  This will not login as an admin though.

RE: Newbie Question

if your SMS credentials used is in a security  group on all your workstations with admin rights(that is what we do) then SMS can reboot and install as an Admin.  Mib I think is correct  at the end of the command string insert Reboot="force"
