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:
- Upgrade Now: If this option is selected, it performs the upgrade and automatically restarts your computer.
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.
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:
- Reboot: Select this option to have the reboot occur immediately.
- Reboot later: Select this option to reboot later. You will not be able to select a specific reboot time. This option is to be used at your discretion.
