Console Tools: Cancel Pending Restart or Shutdown
What it does:
Runs shutdown.exe /a on the remote machine, aborting any shutdowns currently in progress.
How it does it:
This tool cancels any pending restarts or shutdowns by running shutdown /a on the remote device.
Navigate to the Cancel Pending Restart or Shutdown Tool by right clicking on a device, selecting Recast RCT > Console Tools > Cancel Pending Restart or Shutdown:
When the action is run, the following dialog box will open:
The Cancel Pending Restart or Shutdown tool requires the following permissions:
- This action requires the Cancel Shutdown permission in the System Information plugin.
- This action requires local administrator permissions on the remote devices. If using a Recast Server with service account, the service account will need local administrator permissions on the remote devices. This tool uses remote WMI.
This will only cancel shutdowns / restarts that are imminent. It will not clear shutdown / restart tasks in task scheduler.
