Update agent preferences on devices

If you want to update agent preferences on devices, such as requiring permission for remote control, you don't have to redeploy the entire agent configuration. You can make the changes you want in the Agent configuration window, and from that configuration's shortcut menu click Schedule update. This opens the Scheduled tasks window and creates an update task and package for the configuration you scheduled the update from. This package is only a few hundred kilobytes in size.

Updating preferences won't install or remove agents on a device. If the update contains preferences for agents that aren't on a device, the preferences that don't apply will be ignored.

IMPORTANT: Agent Watcher doesn't support preference changes through scheduled updates. If you want to change Agent Watcher preferences, right-click the device you want in the network view and click Update Agent Watcher settings.

To update agent preferences on devices
  1. Click Tools > Configuration > Agent configuration.
  2. Customize the configuration you want to use.
  3. When you're done, from the configuration's shortcut menu, click Schedule update to agent settings. This opens the Scheduled tasks window.
  4. Target the devices you want to update and schedule the task.
