Automatic Reboot/Reconnect During Remote Control Sessions

Recommended Posts

Remote Control really needs the ability to both trigger a reboot and to automatically reconnect when the system you're connected to completes the restart. Having it immediately disconnect when a reboot is triggered (usually if it's running as a service, it should be able to hold the session open for things like the first phase of installing Windows updates) and having to manually try over and over again to see if the machine has completed its reboot is really frustrating when you're trying to solve an issue remotely that requires a lot of reboots or even when you're just trying to do a number of updates to a system.

I too believe this is a great idea and should have been included from the start. I use the remote desktop extensively and I find myself having to either watch the online/offline status or simply retry over and over manually until it reconnects. This is a lot of trouble and wastes a lot of time when the computer can do it with almost no effort at all. Don't forget to add the ability to cancel if you don't want to reconnect.

      Hi Team,
       
      Has anyone tried the new feature custom titles? I have tried it with two applications and keep getting "Failed to read metadata".
      Can anyone help with this?
       
      Thank you,
      Sean Faria

      I was getting the policies configured for my new setup and I noticed that Patch Management only allows you to select categories of patches and just decide to install them as a whole or not. Unless I'm missing something, there's no ability to approve or deny patches on an individual level. This is a somewhat vital part of any RMM suite as we may often need to decline individual patches that are known to be causing issues (a common problem with Windows 10 these days.) I'd say this is something vital for Pulseway to get implemented as I've worked with a number of RMMs over the years and it's the first one I've seen that doesn't offer this.

      Hey all.
      I've enabled 2FA on my Pulseway account but I'm having an issue with it constantly prompting for 2FA every time I try to use Remote Control on a system I manage from the Pulseway Dashboard application. I have the setting enabled in the WebApp to refuce the frequency of the prompts but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. I seem to be getting prompted every time. I'd honestly rather get prompted once when I launch the Dashboard application then every single time I want to remote to a system.
      Is there a way to stop these constant 2FA prompts without disabling it entirely? Thanks!

      I just signed up for Pulseway to monitor a small client of my side business. I am in the process of setting up patch management for workstations. I would like the systems to prompt the end users to reboot upon installing updates but Pulseway seems to be very restrictive in how it lets you set that up. It looks like all I can do is have it reboot immediately or give the users a 5 minute warning with a generic message.
      I work with a competitor product at my day job and it allows us to specify whatever message we want, set whatever timer amount we want and allow the users to defer the updates as many times as we want or force a reboot after a certain number of deferments. It does not appear Pulseway provides any of this customizability.
      It would be very nice to have these options so I can have choices other than forcing end users to reboot during the day or having systems that potentially go days without a reboot after installation.
      Thanks!

      I'm currently running Pulseway OnPrem (7.0.0 build 120 release 283), and I'm using Pulseway Remote Control (6.6.3). 
       
      The issue I have experienced is that the remote control notification doesn't always show up on the client when I attempt to remote control a session. We have 150+ computers in our environment and sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it doesn't, and the different behavior can even occur on the same machine from time to time.
      Pulseway is configured to automatically allow the remote session if no one accept (or deny) the request within a minute, and I have noticed that even if the notification doesn't show up, the connection will still be established when the timer runs out. 
       
      To make things clearer, here are two different scenarios. (Scenario 2 is the incorrect behavior)
      Scenario 1:
      Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification "do you allow x to remote control" -> User press Allow -> Remote session established 
      Scenario 2:
      Select computer -> Select active session -> Client notification not shown -> 1 minute timeout -> Remote session established 
       
      Are you guys aware of this? Has anyone else experienced the same behavior?
