To the point you MAY have to reboot your system?
Because that is a new one on me
Its not hard to imagine a scenario where that happens but its also just as likely the defacto step given by anyone when something involves network
connectivity. Because you dont know what system is running or how someone is configured "reboot" is a common thing.
Also it clearly states MAY and does not say WILL HAVE TO leaving the choice to reboot , if you aren't impacted , up to you.
If they wanted to do something nefarious vs leaving the choice to reboot up to you then their are much easier ways . For example after the test they
could just drop the local power , outside of those on a UPS it would get a lot more people then giving folks a choice.
I'm simply saying without more info , nothing here seems abnormal. In Pediatric Healthcare we used to allocate 5, 15 or more minutes to every system
we tested. Either Mass notification , overhead Paging, ASCOM, SMS , take your pick. It didnt mean that it would run for 15 minutes but that the whole
cycle , including any disruption via technology or other, would take that long.
