Resilio Connect version 2.7.0 supports remote restart of agents from Management Console.
It's supported for Linux (including NASes) OS X and Windows agents.
Windows Agent service shall be running as Local System or Admin. Account Local Service does not have permissions to handle services and thus cannot restart the agent.
To restart agent go to Agent details -> Configuration tab. After clicking "Restart", agent received graceful restart signal, startups after that and reconnects to MC.
If agent was not able to shut down within 1.5 minutes, MC shows timeout error. You might want to try again later or shut down agent manually on the computer.
Management Console is not in control of agent's startup. Console cannot remotely start agent.
For agents of version older than 2.7.0 the button is not available at all.
For offline agents the restart button is grayed out and is inactive.
