Restart System
The Restart System object will restart a computer on your network. The Restart System object can either wait for applications to shut down gracefully or you can configure the object to forcefully shut down any running applications. You also can send a message to notify your users of the reason for the disruption.
This object uses a satellite license. See Objects that Require Satellite Licenses for more information.
