Hi VP,

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 ?

One of the user trying to connect the Afaria Client manually but he is still having SP4 client file, right now we are in SP16.

How to update the client file manually ? .wpp files are not available on his device.

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.

Thanks,
Atsushi
