Shutdown.exe not reset CPU time

By surveymaster.shivaram ·
We are scheduling shutdown.exe to reboot our windows 2000 servers in the week-end. After the reboot, I checked the CPU TIME (task manager) on all these servers. It doesn't reset CPU time to zero. If I do reboot manually CPU TIME will be reset to zero. How to fix this problem. Help is appriciated.

I was unable to locate any specific information regarding you problem in the Microsoft Knowledgebase. The CPU Time is process specific so it really depends on which process you need to be reset. I know that in Windows Server 2003 an event viewer message is inserted to indicate Up-Time, however, you may need to find some third party software that will be a counter for uptime.

Finally, if you know the specific service you are watching for CPU Time, then when the server reboots through the shutdown.exe, you can create a script that will manually restart only the specified service. This might do the trick. Always be very careful when you manually start and restart services. And always have a good backup!

Hope that helps!
