    I think that it is value 3 to update Afaria client automatically.

    3. Silent, unattended reboot. No prompting.

    • > Current value is 1 can we change to 3 ? will it impact on any other machines ?
      You can change this value to 3. And I think that I influence other machines when you change it because this is registry.

      > How to update the client file manually ?
      Sorry, I do not know the procedure.

      By the way, I found contents same as this KBA with Afaria manual.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Device Management (SAP Afaria 7 SP16)
      6.11.5 Update Considerations for Windows Devices (P265)

      The key is defined according to the following values:
      0 – Not silent.
      1 – Silent, attended reboot. Prompts device user for reboot.
      2 – Silent, unattended reboot. No prompting.
      3 – Obsolete key. Defaults to behavior of value 5.
      4 – Silent, no reboot. If upgrade requires reboot, the process is aborted. This key is included only for backwards compatibility and should be used with caution.
      5 – Silent, delayed reboot. If reboot is necessary, waits until the device user performs a reboot to continue the upgrade process.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      The Afaria manual is different from KBA in a Registry key value. (The Afaria manual begins with a 0 value)
      I confirm this difference to KBA creator.
