Snapshot Intelligence settings

At Setup > Global Settings, you can define the general settings of your Ivanti Automation environment, and the default settings of Dispatchers and Agents.

Snapshot Intelligence

When use of snapshot is detected

Specifies what should happen if Ivanti Automation detects that a snapshot has been applied to an Agent.

When the last change path is reapplied

Specifies whether specific types of Task should be skipped whenever a change path is reapplied automatically as a result of Snapshot Intelligence.

  • Always skip shutdown Tasks for Agents that boot from a snapshot (read-only virtual disks that are used by e.g. Citrix Provisioning Servers), to prevent these Agents from ending up in a loop. Do not skip shutdown Tasks for regular Agents on which reboots will be necessary, for example after software installation.
