If I understand correctly, this will be a new server? If that's the case, then your workstations will continue to talk to the old server until you push an agent to them from the new one.
Hi Jeff and thank you for your answer !
The workstations are currently NOT managed by any ePO Server.
But because they have an agent installed (installed by VirusScan I think) I would like to be sure that the new ePO Server won'y try to communicate with them even if they appear in a group.
With the default settings, it will not. Once you push the agents, it's actually the agents that periodically poll the server for updates, not the other way around. The clients have no way of knowing about the ePO server until they get an agent from it, with the server info in a file called sitelist.xml.
Actually to get that technically correct your manual VSE clients do not run the frameworkservice in "Managed mode" (=ePO Agent) but in "Updater mode" (unmanaged mode) happy
Thank you metalhead for this information.
Is there a méthod to detect if the agent is in the updated or managed mode ?
If you open the agent log (agent_%computername%.xml) and check the third column (component) you see updater instead of agent if running in updater mode.
