When MSP N-central installs Arcserve Backup, devices must restart twice: once for the installation of Arcserve Backup, and after installing the latest update. If the setting, Restart device if necessary is disabled on the Properties tab of the device (the default configuration), the Windows Agent will not re-start the device. If Restart device if necessary is enabled, the Windows Agent will re-start the device as follows:

  • If no one is signed-in to the device - The Windows Agent restarts the device once, immediately after Arcserve Backup has been installed, and then a second time immediately after the latest Arcserve Backup update has been applied.
  • If a User is signed-in to the device - The Windows Agent displays a message after installing Arcserve Backup asking them to re-start the device. If the user does not re-start the device within 60 minutes, the Windows Agent automatically restarts the computer. This same behavior will occur when the Windows Agent installs the most recent Arcserve Backup update.
