22 Replies

We are evaluating LabTech.  We have been on Kaseya for 5 years.  So far the Hotfix design in LabTech looks pretty good, with group approvals and denies.  Templates took a little while for us to…Continue

Farzon Almaneih replied to Bert Haver's discussion Patch Reboot Action
"The workaround is to create a monitor looking for that reboot.  The monitor calls a script that checks to see if someone is logged on.  If no, reboot."

Farzon Almaneih replied to Pikachu's discussion Windows Updates in Labtech
