Configuration options in dialog box prompting restart for logged-in users?

Hi - this is a generic kind of question as I don't yet have access to the QMM console and we have contractors performing our migration, working remotely.

I was wondering how much customization is possible in the dialog box that prompts Windows users to restart (note that I haven't yet seen *this* myself either). 

  1. What's the maximum amount of time they can delay?
  2. Can they click Postpone?
  3. Can the message be configured to pop up / nag them again at repeated intervals, and finally *force* a restart after X hours/days/whatever?
  4. Is there room to include custom text that explains in more detail what is happening, how they need to log in again, what they may experience, how to get support, etc. ?

Thanks - I think we are on the latest version, or at least close to, of QMM for AD.

  • What's the maximum amount of time they can delay?
    The reboot delay should not be set longer then 90 mins. The secure channel between the workstation and DC will cause issues if you delay for an extended period or do not reboot.

    Can they click Postpone?
    NO. The tool is using a Win32 API and that API does not allow this.

    Can the message be configured to pop up / nag them again at repeated intervals, and finally *force* a restart after X hours/days/whatever?.
    No, again same Win32 API, same reason.

    Is there room to include custom text that explains in more detail what is happening, how they need to log in again, what they may experience, how to get support, etc. ?
    Yes, the text presented to the end users is configurable.

    The scheduling UI shown below is to when the task will be pushed to the end points.
