Re: Prevent Workstation automatic reboot after agent update

Yes, we're using the -x now to prevent the reboot.
So we're fine.
My thought is, if your present the user with a "timer" your should be able to tweak it otherwise, don't put one! 5 mins is one thing, but I'd like a timer for 1 min instead, what can be done ?
That is the question.

Cheers!
