I am looking to use orion to run a scheduled reboot remotely.
Trying to automate this so that if there was event that required a few servers to be rebooted out of hours after a scheduled task had completed, it could be easily setup.
a scheduled windows task using psshutdown in a batch file seems to be the only way and manually editing it each time to include the servers you want to run it against each time.
It would be a nice feature to select a group of nodes (the same way as manage/unmanage) and given the option to perform a task (e.g. reboot) at set times.
Server Management is not a common task that people typically do from NPM. You could probably script something, like you said. I will add a feature enhancement to the system to look at for a future release.
