In Samba HEAD use the net 'net' utility for this:

net rpc shutdown -r 

should do it (read the source, no doco yet...)

Thank idra for the initial code, which I moved into 'net' late last year.

Samba HEAD also has the server side, if you want to reboot samba servers,
but the script must be configured first.
