Configuring the Symantec Management Agent settings for evaluation use

Client Management Suite


By default, Symantec Management Agent requests new configuration from Notification Server once per hour. This means that it can take up to one hour for a rollout policy to reach the target computer.

If you are evaluating this solution in a lab environment, you can change the configuration request interval to speed up the evaluation process.

The next time Symantec Management Agent downloads configuration information, these settings take effect. If you used the default agent configuration settings before the change, updates can take up to one hour before these changes are effective.

To configure the Symantec Management Agent for evaluation use

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Agents/Plug-ins > Targeted Agent Settings.

  2. In the left pane, under Policy Name, click the policy that you want to configure.

  3. In the right pane, on the General tab, in the Download new configuration every box, change the value to 5 minutes.

    This forces the agent to check for changes more frequently.

  4. In the Upload basic inventory every box, change the value to 15 minutes.

    This forces inventory data to be sent more frequently.

  5. Click Save changes.
