    3. (Windows only) If you want to prevent Windows hosts from restarting after installation, under Restart host, select No.

      • When performing an upgrade from Tectia Client 4.x to 5.x-6.x, restart is required.

      • When performing a fresh installation or an upgrade between Tectia Client versions 5.x-6.x, restart is required only when the FTP- SFTP conversion or transparent TCP tunneling components are installed.

      [Caution]Caution

      You should prevent the restart only when you plan to restart the host(s) manually later, otherwise the system is left in an unstable state. If a host is not restarted, an install lock is set by the Management Agent, preventing any further Tectia installations or uninstallations until the host has been restarted.
