Server or Workstation hangs on "saving settings" during remote restart until mouse or keyboard is shook or used.
Posted on 2008-11-06
Crazy thing. I have a few 2003 servers and some xp workstations. When I issue a remote restart command either with Shutdown - i or via a remote software install (such as BackupExec remote agent) and even some windows updates.. the server will not restart until I connect to the KVM and shake the mouse... It is stuck on the "Saving Settings" screen during the shudown / restart process. This happens on multiple machines on DIFFERENT kvm's , one is a Belkin, another is an Avocent IBM RCM. This just started recently and I think it was caused by a windows update. Im not sure which one.
ANy help would be greatly appreciated. Its very annoying to have to wake up at 3:30am and connect to my remote conoles to "shake the mouse" to get them to restart.
