I am creating a package that upgrade the bios of computers.
Everything is fine until the reboot. Indeed, i have to reboot the computer to apply changes.
The problem is that when the computers are rebooting, the link between LanSweeper Server and the computer is disconected, so i can only see the red line "Shutting down Access is denied." on my deployment's logs.

Is it possible to avoid it?
Moreover, ideally, i would like to check the bios version after reboot.

Thank you for your time!

The only way to avoid it would be to make sure that the last step of the package is run before the computer reboots.

I assume that not further action is required after the reboot for the update to complete. If so, the best thing would be to create a second deployment package with the remaining steps.

For checking the BIOS version, you could create a report based on the table tblBIOS. This contains the version of the bios too. Just make sure to fully rescan your assets after a deployment or change the item scan time as mentioned here: https://www.lansweeper.com/kb/115/managing-how-often-specific-data-is-scanned.html
