Issue/Introduction

 

Resolution

 Starting with the ITMS 7.5 SP1 release (with SIM 7.5.240 and later), there is a new reboot check message:

  • In some cases, user is required to create an offline installation package, support package, or update licenses.
  • Symantec Installation Manager (SIM) 7.5 SP1 performs this check only when the user is performing installation or upgrade tasks.
  • Rebooting the computer is now an optional task, and the following message is displayed after SIM is launched:

"Another installation is requiring a reboot to complete changes to the system...."

 

To skip the pending reboot check, use the following regkey (key is not created by default):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Aim\IgnorPendingReboot 

Create a Key called "IgnorPendingReboot", with DWORD value name as Enable and set the values as mentioned below.

•Enable = 1   Ignores pending reboot
•Enable = 0   Checks for reboot
