How can I determine if a reboot is pending on a Windows 2000 server? For example how do you tell if someone had installed a patch or changed something within Windows for example that prompted them "You must restart your computer" (and they clicked no). In other words the system requires a restart?
Please note I'm not looking to tell if someone installed a patch etc. We have been changing IP settings on our Windows 2000 servers and some prompted us to reboot them. Obvioulsy you should not need to when making IP changes so we figure that maybe a change was made previously that prompted a reboot and the reboot was not done at that time.
I was thinking perhaps there is a "reboot pending" type flag in the registry or a file but I cant find it.
