Even though we have restart notifications turned off, the end users are still getting continuous prompts to restart.

    Hello Chimpymoo,

     

    Unfortunately, this SWUP specific "Show reboot notification" settings are not supported in 14.10 versions.

    Please, use:

    "Settings (Standard  view) > Real-time scanning > Actions on malware detection (workstations) / (Windows servers) > Show security notifications to"

    setting to configure all notifications visibility, including SWUP restart dialog.

     

    Sorry for inconvenience.

     

    Best regards,

    Vad

    Hello,

     

    How did you turn restart notifications OFF?

    We have added a new setting to make that possible in 19.4 but it's not available in Portal yet

    Settings > Software Updater

     

    Show reboot notifications to (workstations): Nobody

    Show reboot notifications to (Servers): Nobody

     

    Policy manager and Client security on 14.10 latest.

    I see, you asked in a wrong forum - it's for PSB, not for Policy Manager.

    I will forward this to Policy Manager people

    How do you enable reboot notifications in PM 13.12?

  • VadVad Posts: 1,051 F-Secure Employee

    Hello hyvokar,

     

    There are no other settings related to SWUP restart dialog in PM 13.12 Console, except "Restart after installation" and "Force restart in".

     

    Select "Ask user"  for "Restart after installation" policy, and the Client Security user will get SWUP restart dialogs.

     

    Best regards,

    Are these settings just for automatic installations? Are there settings for manual installations?

  • VadVad Posts: 1,051 F-Secure Employee

    Manual installation uses the same settings.

     

    Best regards,
