Warning: Sage 50 2016 Server Manager will Reboot Without Prompting

We were installing the database manager on the backend server for a client.

It started the .NET 4.5.2 FULL installer then suddenly disappeared after a few minutes.

So, keep in mind that this one will need to be done when no one is accessing that backend server! Or for that matter that the user that we are working on setting up or updating will have their machine reboot spontaneously.

Also, Sage released this version as an “update”. We received quite a few calls from our accounting firms when they could no longer connect to their Sage/Simply data on the server.

In the end, it turned out that no prompt was given to the user that the “update” was actually an “upgrade”. 

Yo, Sage! A little warning would be appropriate please.

EDIT: Updated a bit for specifics.
