Reassigning reboot windows to their targets

If you made modifications to a reboot window which is already assigned to a device group or a device the window must be reassigned for the modifications to take effect. This means that the reboot window is updated with its modifications on the assigned devices. The reassignment will always be executed on all members of a device group if it is selected.

There are two ways to reassign the reboot window:

If the reboot window is assigned to more than one target, it is easier to reassign from the modified reboot window.

To reassign the modified reboot window on all targets

  1. Go to Global Settings > Reboot Windows and select the modified reboot window.
  2. Then go to the selected window's Assigned Objects > Device Groups or Assigned Objects > Devices subnode.
  3. Select all devices or device groups in the table in the right window pane.
  4. Click Edit > Reassign Reboot Window .

The reassignment process of the reboot window is launched immediately. As soon as the target devices received the modified window they applying the new reboot settings.

To reassign the modified reboot window on an individual device

The reboot window can also be reassigned individually via the assigned devices or device groups. The example below shows how to do this for an individual device, proceed in the same way to reassign the window to the target groups, via the device group's node.

  1. Select the device's node in the left window pane.
  2. Then go to the selected device's Assigned Objects > Reboot Windows subnode.
  3. Select the modified reboot window in the table in the right window pane.
  4. Click Edit > Reassign Reboot Window .

The reassignment process of the reboot window is launched immediately. As soon as the target device has received the modified window it applies the new reboot settings.
