I am search for a way to validate and maybe stop an automatic reboot under windows. E.g. automatic reboot is initialized by windows update.
When adding a shutdown script with gpedit this script gets executed correctly but what can I do when those scripts are more complicated?
My case is the following: before I reboot a server, I need to gracefully shutdown the installed application and I have to wait because the application shutdown can take up to an hour. So I have to validate within the shutdown script if everything was executed successfully and the application was shut down correctly. I cannot find a way to stop the reboot from within those shutdown scripts.
Does someone have an idea how to establish this?
Short: Stop reboot from (e.g.) gpedit shutdown script. A similar way would be also OK. Scripting the windows update calls is not really a way to go for me.. :(
