Restart Script

Recommended Posts

I've tried a couple of recommendations around the web for powershell and batch for restarting a Windows machine. Each script seems to work fine on all machines with the exception of one workstation that seems to shutdown only and not perform a restart - when the scheduled task is ran via Pulseway.

Has anyone ever experienced this - where the machine simply shuts down vs restarting? Also, is there a reliable Windows restart script that anyone can share? Thank you.

What command are you running to restart the operating system? Is it a simple:

shutdown -r -f -t 00

If so, try to restart the OS via WMI:

Get-WmiObject win32_operatingsystem -ComputerName Quark | Invoke-WMIMethod -name Win32Shutdown -ArgumentList @(6)

The script above looks good on a test machine. I'll test it out tonight on the one that's simply shutting down only and let you know. Thanks again.
