Do you have windows server 2012 R2 ??

Or you can try with powershell:

$time = 120
$server = "mycomputer"
$comment = "this is my comment."
$reboot = @("/r", "/t", $time, "/m", "\\$server", "/c", $comment)

& shutdown $reboot

Open in new window

The comment you refer to is the comment shown before rebooting. It will not appear anywhere persistent. If you initiate a manual reboot, it will be performed immediately. So the question is what you really want to do?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Use shutdown /i. On my systems any additional parameter gets ignored, sadly, so you have to provide all options in the GUI part, including the machine to reboot.
