Some jobs need to be configured for a specific time and amount to run on your hardware
There are different possibilities for this configuration. In this screenshot the daily scan job is executed between 9:00 am and 04:00 pm, every 24 hours and after a minimum uptime of 5 minutes.
The maximum interval for daily scan jobs is 72 hours.
This option sets the specified service which will be used for searching for updates.
You can choose between:
We recommend using either Microsoft Update or Windows Update for the settings. The Agent will still only use WSUS but it will check directly against the official Update Catalog. This ensures that no updates will be missed.
Here you can configure the minimum version of the agent for your hardware. Hardware which has a version < Min. Agent version will automatically be updated to the Min. Agent version.
This configures the behavior of agents/servers during registration.
Here you can disable the e-mail notification for your organization.
This Configuration controls Hardware to Site assignment in your Organisation. Normally your hardware will be assigned at the first registration.
In some situations, it may be necessary to move already assigned hardware to a new Site. This behavior is controlled by the 'Every time' configuration parameter.
This configuration controls hardware type updates from the inventory. Normally your hardware type will be assigned at the first registration.
Use 'Every time' to update the Hardware Type on every inventory but if hardware class changes the hardware type will not be updated.
With 'Every time including hardware class' the hardware type and hardware class will be updated on every inventory.
If you use the default, 'New Hardware', only the new hardware gets assigned a Hardware Class and Type, it will not be updated in case it changes.
Alternatively you could use Multi-Edit to replace the current Hardware Type with the calculated Hardware Type from the inventory.
