Restart Emby Server - Scheduled Task

Regular updates to both Emby and plugins, and other reasons to restart server.  However I prefer to wait until no one is streaming to restart server, which often means waiting a long time.  Would be nice to be able to set a date/time to restart the server automatically during predictable down times like early am.

Hi, if the server requires a restart, we already have a built-in option to automate this, and it will only do so when the system is idle.

ok so how do I manage this mystery option?  The below is already enabled and does nothing no matter how many days go by, this also doesn't work for plugin updates.

It is the second option on your screenshot. There must have been connected users.

I think thekingswolf means, a scheduled task, separate from installing updates.

Do you use Kodi as your client?

There used to be a Server Restart plugin, which would restart Emby when you wanted, but it was deemed unnecessary and was removed,which was a shame, as it worked really well.

I do not have users connected to the server at all times for several days straight.  the restart function does not work as selected.  my request for being able to designate a set restart time remains.

It seems to work just fine in my testing. In some cases it could be background sync processes in some of the apps preventing the sessions from idling. That's a separate topic that we're looking into. Thanks.

This would have been great to have now. As I restart my emby server nightly to release tuners for a known issue. But it's better than having Plex!

A work around can be using `cron` jobs. Just set it to restart every day / every a few days at a certain time. But it will restart from a system level and will not respect running tasks (and users streaming it will be kicked out).
