Deploying FortiClient upgrades from FortiClient EMS

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

  1. Upgrade Now: If you select this option, FortiClient performs the upgrade and automatically restarts your computer.
  2. Upgrade Later: If you select this option, 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 you do not select an option, 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: Select this option to have the reboot occur immediately.
    2. Reboot later: Select this option to reboot the computer later. You cannot select a specific reboot time. Use this option at your discretion.
