Sending Updates to All Computers

After you define or update device permissions or file permissions, you can send the information to all client computers immediately. Otherwise, updated information will automatically upload the next time a user logs in or the computers are restarted.

  1. From the Management Console, select Tools > Send Updates to All Computers.
    The Send updates to all computers dialog opens.
  2. Select one of the following options from the Send updates to all computers dialog.
  3. Option Description
    Yes Immediately updates connected computers. Ivanti Device and Application Control can take a long time to send updates depending on the number of computer connections. The Management Console dialog remains open until the Application Server finishes sending the updates.
    No Asynchronously updates connected computers. The Management Console dialog closes while the Application Server finishes sending the updates. You can continue working with the console while the update is done in the background.
    Cancel Closes the Send updates to all computers dialog and halts the update process.

Updates are distributed to all computers running the Ivanti Device and Application Control clients that are registered in the Application Server(s) online table(s). A message appears in the Output window when the updates are complete.

Remember: Any computer that is switched off, locked, or disconnected from the network receives the updates at the next network connection.
