Force a restart via the command line option in deployment tasks within ePO

I am trying to find information on how to force a restart, via the command line option, within the deployment tasks in ePO.  I want to force a restart after installing VSE 8.8, however, I have been unsuccessful in my testing as directed by McAfee support.  Can anyone out there provide more information on this?


By the way, I am aware of the restart option in the McAfee Agent policy, but I do not want to use that as it means either managing multiple policies or it applying to all machines.  I would rather be able to force the restart from the deployment task so I can assign it as needed.


Thanks in advance for any advice.


Regards,

Erik

Re: Force a restart via the command line option in deployment tasks within ePO

that command line is usually VS specific so while its possible, it will take some serious trial and error to figure it out.  I recommend one of premade deployment packages which is much easier to call a reboot using a client task.  they can be found here. https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-3091

I gave this suggestion a shot, however, it did not work.  I got  "Error occurred while installing SDREBOOT1002."  Does anyone have any other ideas?

You will get an error reporting back when you use these packages as they don't actually install anything, and they don't properly report a "successful completion" code back to ePO. 

You may want to check with the remote user/machine to see if it actually rebooted.  Also be sure to enter the arguments for the command line.
