Agent Policies

Jump to solution

Agent is 5.0.6.xxx

EPO is 5.9.1.xxx

The question is there is a option tick box in the Agent Repository Policy stateing this.

"Automatically allow clients to access newly-added repositories"

Can anyone point me to any documentation on what this does and how it affects the way the agent checks which repositories that are usable in the list.

 

Before you tell me to read it and take it at face value test out your understanding in a lab.

1. creating a list of repositories with a couple disabled and a couple enabled and with the option ticked test. 

2. check on a agent in the mcscript.log file that it tests and states which repositories are usable and which are not. You should find the list of repositories in the mcscript.log file search for " usable " or " Not Usable "

3. Now untick it and apply the policy to the endpoint and do a update now to make it check the repositories for updates. note the time you did the update so you can find the log entries.

4. Check in mcscript what repositories it is checking now and tell me does it do the same test of each repository in the list it did in the first test. 

I think you may be surprised.
