Force a daily reboot
Posted on 2008-11-11
We have approx. 120 end-user workstations running XP Service pack 2. Windows 2003 Active Directory environment.
We would like to force periodic restarts of all user PC's, after-hours. However, we have some users (Hotel Front Desk, Security) who might be using their machines at any time 24/7.
We are looking for a way to force a restart at 4am, IF the machine has not been restarted in the prior 24 hours, AND allow the user to abort the restart easily if he or she cannot tolerate the downtime. (Which should be rare.)
