Maybe, just maybe, I can see the first install requiring a reboot. And even then, there is no reason for it. Services can be started and stopped w/o reboots. Most software doesn't require a reboot anymore, especially server software. We just loaded GFI and Trend OfficeScan, O&O Defrag, ALL server versions on our servers AND NO REBOOT. A simple update to an existing TI8 installation, guess what, reboot-a-rama. So, why do we need to still restart ?
