Restart (Windows)

What

Starting from FileWave version 14.7+ we added support for remotely rebooting a Windows system from both the Web and Native administrators.

When/Why

As an IT administrator, a remote reboot is sometimes required to address a problem or complete an installation.  

How

This new action can be performed from both the Web and Native admin interfaces.

There is no "confirm" dialog when issuing the restart command.  Choosing the command directly executes the restart action.



After issuing the reboot command a dialog will be seen by any logged-in user that will look similar to the first dialog below. Note that the below images are from Windows 11, and this will look slightly different on Windows 10.

.     









3 minutes after the first dialog appears another dialog will display similar to the below dialog. After this second warning has shown indicating that a device reboot is 2 minutes away the Windows system will reboot 2 minutes later.
