Set the default agent and probe settings

You can configure default behavior for probes and agents. This includes software upgrades and the security credentials used when performing administrative tasks such as running scripts and distributing third-party software.

Default settings for individual Customers or Sites can be configured when they are first created using the Customer Wizard or the Site Wizard.

  1. Click AdministrationDefaults > Agent & Probe Settings.
  2. Click through each tab and configure the required options. For additional information, click the question mark icon for each section.
  3. Select Propagate to distribute the defined credentials to the managed devices.
  4. If you do not select the Propagate check box, the new default settings will only apply when installing new probes and agents.

  5. Click Save.

Agents and probes update their configurations with the new settings selected. As new agents are installed, or a new probe installed, these defaults are used.
