  1. Go to Machine View by selecting View > Machines.
  2. Select the machine you scanned in the Patch Management section (this should be your console machine).
  3. Right-click the machine and then select Agents > Install / Reinstall with Policy and then select the agent policy you just created.
    The Operations Monitor is displayed. It shows the status of the different steps involved in the installation process. For example:
