Shut Down Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Shut Down action can be used to shut down, restart, power off, or log off Windows.  This can be useful when performing builds in virtual machines, combined with automatic Windows logon.


Computer name: Remote computer to shut down (optional, shuts down local computer if blank).


Operation: The operation to perform (shut down, restart, power off, or log off).


Force applications to close: If checked, applications will be forced to close if they do not respond to the shut down request.


Note: This action utilizes WMI, and your network configuration may need to be adjusted to allow WMI to operate through Windows Firewall; see this article for more details.
