After Hours Not Restarting

Steel Contributor

I have my servers set to restart after Windows Updates outside of Active Hours. It shows this also in the Settings. However, the servers never restart. Is there a reason for this or another setting I might be missing? Thanks!

Might be someone was logged on?

Is there a way to bypass that? 99% of the time I have no users logged in. Sometimes we leave administrator user logged in, but it is okay to restart anyway. Thank you.

A few listed here that could affect the restart.

Here is how mine is setup:


Might check the values below (if they exist)


AUOptions = 2
NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers = 0
NoAutoUpdate = 0
RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled = 0
RebootWarningTimeoutEnabled = 0

Here is what I see in regedit. 


The update log or event logs may also provide clues.
