DAT install question

Is it possible to find out from a PC which repository it's retrieved it's DAT update from?

We have multiple repositories all on different subnets all hosting the software. Im new to ePO, however I believe the idea is that computers/agents should look to get their updates from their local repository and should there be any issues then search through the others.

We have just had an instance where a number of computers in different locations have all tried to pull their DAT files from the same repository even though its not that local to them.

The Agents are installed via a framepkg so they should all have the list of repositories in this.

Essentially we are trying to troubleshoot why the computers/agents went to this specific site to get their DAT files.

I will give that a look over.

Any idea if its also possible to get this information remotely without having to run something on the client machine?
