I have recently taken over management of our ePO server and trying to get my head round how it all works. We have had a call come in saying that the DAT files are not automatically updating on all machines in our estate and I am trying to understand why. I have a couple of questions which should help, if anyone has anything else to add please do as open to all suggestions;
Hope that makes sense and someone can assist, as I said I have inherited these settings so if re-scheduling those times is advised to some time during the day where most machines would be switched on please let me know.
ePO 5.2 > VSE 8.8 with Patch 8
Scheduling and assignment of tasks is set in the system tree. Look at the Assigned Client Tasks tab.
in the Scheduling section of the task there is a Check box "Run missed task" if this is checked your task will run if the machine is switched off at the time.
