Update agent configurations on devices

If you want to update agent configurations on devices, 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 configurations won't install or remove agents on a device. If the update contains configurations for agent components that aren't on a device, the changes that don't apply will be ignored.

Note that there's a difference between agent configurations and agent settings. Updating an agent configuration doesn't update the linked agent settings within that configuration. If you want to update the agent settings specified in an agent configuration, you need to do that from Tools > Configuration > Agent Settings, as described in Create change settings tasks.

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.
