I've just upgraded my epo from 3.5.0 to 4.0P3 and installed the new 4.0 agent and added in AV 8.7i into the epo, ive started deploying v8.7 plus the v4 agent to all the desktop pcs but i cant figure out how to change the agent settings, ie when it pulls updates from the epo etc. can anyone help?
yeah thats all correctly setup and enforced in my OU etc.... but my local machine is showing my DAT file being from november the 10th! the agent to server interval is set to 60 mins, and the server updated its definitions yesterday, so shouldnt my pc's agent have picked this up this morning?
wakeing the agent up makes it pass its current properties back to epo and it also pulls down any new policies/task etc.
no alterations to tasks or policies will actually apply to an agent until it has checked in, you can wait for the agent to check in... but this will take a maximum of how long your communication interval is, or you can wake the agents up and they will get it asap as they cheack back in. this does have a bandwidth hit, but its not that much unless you are trying to wakeup 5000 machines at once happy
a deployment task (much like building an update task) is used to install packages like VSE 8.7 to machines, I would re coomed that you use the remove function on the prev version when you set the install on the 8.7 version though.
you can easily make up a report to return the data you want, I would start with
reporting tab new query button managed systems (as the source of the data) table (as the data type)
then just pick and choose what data you want and what the filters are like when they checked in etc)
when you have finished and run it to check its what you want dont forget to save it and if you have others who may want to see this and you are the epo admin you can also make it public afterwards so they can access it too
