Need to deploy a job which can reboot immediately even though configuration policy defines different settings for prompt, postpone etc.,
Is there a way to override the reboot behaviour policy for an individual Software Delivery Job?
All versions of CA Client Automation.
Reboot Related Macros
The following macros can be added to the command line of the procedure or as user parameters for the job container, provided the command line of the procedure accepts user parameters, which is enabled by the $up macro. During job evaluation and build, the manager looks for these macros. If they are found they will be removed from the command line and transformed into job definition properties, which are sent to the agents.
Logoff/Reboot after last job behavior:
Due to the boot option "Logoff/Reboot After Last" it may happen that more than one job may want to influence the boot parameters used. Another scenario when this approach will be used is if the reboot parameters are specified for a job for which no Logoff or Reboot is requested. In this case the rules are as follows:
The reboot override functionality requires CA ITCM r11.2. If the manager is r11.2 but the scalability servers or the agents are pre-r11.2, the reboot override functionality does not work and the default configuration is used by the agent. If the manager is not r11.2, the macros will remain on the command line and eventually get passed as regular parameters to the installer which is launched by the agent.
