Deploying FortiClient upgrades from EMS

You can deploy a FortiClient software update from EMS. A prompt appears on the FortiClient endpoint when an installer package is requested to be deployed. The prompt requests the user to do one of the following:

  1. Upgrade Now

    If this option is selected, it performs the upgrade and automatically restarts your computer.

  2. Upgrade Later

    If this option is selected, you can indicate the time to start the upgrade. The default is 8:00 PM. Your computer automatically restarts after the upgrade has finished.

  3. No Option

    If no option is selected, the upgrade occurs by default at 8:00 PM.

    After FortiClient EMS uninstalls the previous version, it asks if the user wants to reboot. The prompt requests the user to do one of the following:

    1. Reboot Now

      Select this option to have the reboot occur immediately.

    2. Reboot Later

      Select this option to indicate the time to reboot.

    3. Cancel Reboot

      Select this option to cancel the reboot request and reboot at your discretion.
