Allow for reboots before detect and deploy cycles
We have encountered many times when a user leaves for the day without logging out, rebooting, etc and as a result patches fail to install because an application is running. It would be nice to be able to say as part of a patch schedule "reboot prior to detection" or "reboot prior to deployment." In my case, I want the patch cycle to look something like this:
IF patches are required, reboot prior to deployment (to ensure all applications are closed)
reboot if reboot is required
There of course would need to be alert mechanisms for these options as well, but this would help drastically in deploying patches.
