I see nothing under Assigned Client Tasks

Jump to solution

first of all let me start off by saying thank you all for reading and answering all my prior posts / questions much appreciated

today I want to ask you why I do not see any Assigned Client Tasks for my two servers in the Servers group (one is a 2019 DC, the other a 2019 SQL/ePO box)

I successfully deployed the McAfee Agent to both servers, though I am beginning to sense that agent deployment aint considered a "client task" correct me if I am wrong please

I also successfully "deployed" VirusScan to both servers yet I don't see VirusScan under the Assigned Client Tasks either, don't tell me that aint a client task either, LOL  

On the other hand when I take a looksie in the Workstations group I do see HIPS under the Assigned Client Tasks folder, so I recon Host Intrusion Prevention is a client task? 

I am honestly struggling to understand these inconsistencies, please help explain it

where are the Assigned Client Tasks ?where are the Assigned Client Tasks ?

A Deploy agent task is a one-time thing that never creates any type of client task.  A run client task now will create a client task in the client task catalog, but it is only a task that is sent at that time, never assigned in the system tree and deleted on the client once it runs.

To see a task under assigned client tasks, you have to actually schedule it.  This is the preferred method for updates and deployments rather than run client task now (rctn).  A rctn task should be used sparingly and on very few systems at a time.  The scheduled tasks can be set to run immediately, such as for a deployment that is run as soon as a client checks in and gets the task, or on a daily schedule at specific time or times, such as an update task.

Additionally, for consistency and easier task management, it is best to set them up at my organization level.  At group levels, inheritance can be broken to either disable for specific groups or schedule at different times.
