I am curious to know what other people are doing for customized reboot automation. I am struggling with finding a one size fits all solution for the various needs of different clients, servers and workstations. In order ensure new computers, reinstalled agents, etc get regularly scheduled reboots I have started using groups, searches and a reboot script to initiate the reboots. This way I can set a reoccuring maintenance windows as well. We have found this effective for workstations and just exclude anything we need to. Where I am finding this process to break down is with servers. I have allowed my Lead Techs for each of my clients set the schedules for reboots for their clients, and for some locations the reboots on servers fall on different weeks of the month at different times. So to setup groups that combine the right combo of maintenance windows to reboot times means sometimes I am making one group for one server. I know there are other ways around this, but I am also pondering if keeping the same setup for reboots outweighs the exceptions that make this process tedious for some of the reboots. So I would love to hear what you guys are doing to make this an easier process.
