About the Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager

The Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager is designed to monitor the power tasks and patch deployment tasks currently scheduled on a remote target machine. You can use it to modify and delete the scheduled tasks. For example, if you know a certain machine will be unavailable on a certain day you can reschedule any tasks that are set to be performed on that machine.

The Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager uses the services of either the Ivanti Scheduler or the Microsoft Task Scheduler 2.0 or later to display and manage the scheduled tasks on a target machine. Only those tasks performed by the Ivanti Scheduler, however, will be recorded in the log. If the Ivanti Scheduler is configured to be the preferred scheduler but it is not available on a target machine when the Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager is launched, you will be prompted to manually install the Ivanti Scheduler.

The Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager is different than Deployment Tracker. The Scheduled Remote Tasks Manager enables you to monitor and modifyscheduled power andpatch deployment tasks, while Deployment Trackeronly enables you to monitoractivedeployment tasks (and not power tasks).
