hi all

We have a public  facing suite where permanent changes to the PC's are prevented by the use of Deepfreeze, However it looks like the server where deepfreeze is hosted will need to be rebooted after an anti virus change on the server.

What will happen to the public facing Pc's during this reboot? Will they remain frozen?

Thanks all

If the server is the Deep Freeze console, nothing will happen. Just reboot the server, and when the Deep Freeze Server Service restarts, the clients will connect again. The clients are not dependant on the server, it is only used to push configurations to them. The server status of up/down does not affect the clients.

Thanks for quick response. There is only 1 server hosting deepfreeze so was worried about the outcome of the server reboot. e.g no failover is the event of the server being down

Another thing im hoping is that the deepfreeze console will boot up a lot more quickly after the server is rebooted (server is not sheduled for reboots) and has been up for months

If this does not resolve that issue is there anything else i could try to improve the console response time?

Thanks

You won't have any problem with the reboot. As long as the service is set to start automatically with windows, it will pick right back up where it left off.

Are you not updating the clients and the server with windows updates?
