Does anyone have a script to more evenly stagger reboots? We are running into a boot storm essentially when patching a large number of VM's. I know the simple answer is to patch\reboot in smaller groups, but I'd really like patching to be fire and forget. I don't think that there is an easy way without scripting inside or outside of Shavlik.
You can randomize the scheduled scan times through agent which would stagger the deployments. We don't have a method to randomize the deployments from a non-agent scan/deployment through the GUI or scripted.
