Shut down and restart machines

Apr 17, 2013
Note: This procedure does not apply to Remote PC Access machines.
  1. In Studio, use Search to locate the machine you want to shut down or restart, or select a Delivery Group and click View Machines.
  2. Select the machine and perform one of the following actions. Depending on the state of the machine, some of these options are not available:
    • Force shut down — Forcibly powers off the machine and refreshes the list of machines.
    • Restart — Requests the machine's operating system to shut down and then start the machine again. If the operating system is unable to do this, the machine remains in its current state.
    • Suspend — Pauses the machine without shutting it down and refreshes the list of machines.
    • Shut down — Requests the machine’s operating system to shut down.
    Note: If the machine does not shut down within 10 minutes, it is powered off. If Windows attempts to install updates during shutdown, there is a risk that the machine is powered off before the updates are complete.
