Is there a way to change the reboot prompt timeout when a reboot is initiated by Client Automation on a machine?


All versions of CA Client Automation.


The reboot prompt timeout is controlled by the configuration policy:
'Reboot: Prompt Timeout' listed under Default Computer Policy\DSM\Software Delivery\Agent\.
By default, it's set to 1800 (value in seconds = 30 mins), it can be changed to a desired value.

Additional Information

It's possible to manage reboot settings for individual jobs, which is managed by macros, as explained here:
