What exactly is a rolling restart?

  1. Hi guys,

    OK this came up in a thread on here earlier (http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic155580.html) in regards to a Wireless router that was dropping the signal for approx 30seconds every 70 seconds or so.

    One of the solutions suggested was a Rolling Restart.

    Now i have heard of this maybe 2-3 times before but never had to implement one or know enough about it to tell someone what it is or how to start it. Maybe it is something simple and know as another name i am unsure but i do know you can get the software to do this from www.vmsoftware.com


    I would very much appreciate it if someone could help by letter me know exactly what is meant by a rolling restart and what it does.


    Thanks for you help in advance

    Why ask to close this thread?
    Rolling Restart is tracking all the list of terminal servers one by one and disable logons.
    Its a cycle of disabling logons, wait until no one is logged in then reboot. Repeat and repeat until all the list is done.
