When I try to schedule a reboot for 5:00 AM using "tsshutdn 120 /reboot" the server does not reboot, it hangs at the screen that says it is now safe to turn off your computer. The command is being executed as Adminstrator.

There is an option in most shutdown programs to close all open applications. I am a Citrix Admin, but Citrix leaves some processes open that shutdown.exe from the win2k reskit cannot close. If I remember is is as follows with this version

shutdown \\servername /c /r

The above will force all running apps to close before issuing a restart. From most utils you can obtain all available options but using the

shutdown /?

Also...rather than specifying a time, use Win2k task manager to run a dos batch file that executes the shutdown command...hope that helps :)
