Policy push manually

Jump to solution

Can I do a forced policy push?  I have updated the frequency with which the agents will run, and I don't want the new policy to be gradually downloaded by agents.  Rather, I would like to push the new policy to the agents.  How do I do that?

Hi,

Because the communication is always initiated "bottom-to-top" (Agent - Beacon - Inventory Server), you cannot push anything down.

You could trigger Agent policy updates via "mgspolicy -t machine" using a script/AD or some other management infrastructure.
