Reboot Machine with User Interaction

Please use the script to reboot the target machine with user interaction. Here are some cases such as,
User can click ‘Yes’ button to reboot the machine after 2 minutes
User can click ‘No’ button to raise the exception to create ticket
If the User does not do anything the prompt will be hidden after 2 minutes and raise exception to create a ticket

Script should be run as Logged in User then only we can get the user response if they logged in


Please use steps given in the above link to automate the ticket creation based on the failure case of the script
