Deployment task "Run at Every Policy Enforcement" missing?

Jump to solution

Hi,

There are various (old) posts saying that you should enabled "Run at Every Policy Enforcement interval" on certain tasks.

I'm running ePO 5.1.1 and can't find this setting on any of the deployment task options.

I have previously created a Product Deployment Task.

On a New Client Task Assignment, I choose that Deployment Task, and move to the Schedule page.

There are various schedule options (Daily, Run Immediately, etc), but there is no "Run at Every Policy Enforcement interval" check box.

So:

1) Has this check box been removed (and, for completeness, why)?

2) Should I instead have two tasks - a Run Immediately, and a Daily with a "repeat ever x hours" set?

Thanks

Hi

The McAfee Agent 5.0.0 Extension removes the Run at every policy enforcement check box in the Product Deployment task. The option creates additional overhead on the endpoint and network when used with multiple Product Deployment tasks and when the policy enforcement interval is too short. This option has been widely used in many customer environments without recognizing potential unintended consequences.

Hi,

I want to run a task at every policy enforcement interval.

There used to be an option for that.

Excellent, exactly the answer I was looking for.

Curse my search skills, I have no idea how that slipped by me before I posted.

Thanks
