Drive Encryption Update Question

Jump to solution

What is the correct switch to use to suppress the reboot prompt after an update for Drive Encryption completes? In my testing, I've seen a dialog box that has a 60sec countdown that will close on its own after the countdown is complete. Then I will see a smaller dialog box appear on the lower right corner of the desktop with a YES/NO choice for rebooting. It seems the update forces a reboot no matter what, but will the NOREBOOT switch work best for this in the client task command line? Or should I use norestart? I've been looking for a list of available switches and haven't seen anything other than mentions of using NOREBOOT. I am updating to version 7.2.1.16 since I have older DE client versions.

It should have the slash symbol in front as per the guide "/norestart" since it is separate argument.

One other question regarding this - I have a client task setup for the update and I have now entered NORESTART in the Command Line box. Is the forward slash required still or is it assumed?

Hello. 

I'm having similar question when you are using ePO to push the update.

Our Production team doesn't want to have the reboot popup displayed to the end user. I tried with /norestart or NORESTART directly and the message is not hidden.

Does anyone know if it is possible to hide this popup ? Is there another switch ?

Thanks for feedback
