Hello, I would like to program shutdown and wake up my computer with Configuration manager 2012. Is this possible simply ? I've read that is possible, but i cannot find how. Thanks in advance, PS : Sorry for my bad english
The majority of computers on our corporate network are windows 7 or server 2008. Windows updates are distributed via WSUS, this has been configured by Group Policy. The GPO is setup to do the following. Download updates, notifies user that updates are available to install, installs updates on shutdown. This works well with windows 7 computers. We have recently introduced a few windows 8 computers to the network which do not exhibit the same behavior. The windows 8 computers will download the updates but WILL NOT INSTALL UPDATES ON SHUTDOWN. Has anyone else come across this, any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Does anyone have a way this can be done easily? Due to rolling blackouts that are coming, we need the ability to shut these machines down ahead of time. My thought was a script package deployed to a collection but if there were some machines already off, when they start back up they'd get shut down. Really need to figure something out with this, my execs are being relentless.
