Notes

Checks are only added to servers and workstations capable of supporting that Check, for example a Windows Check cannot be added to a Mac workstation.

Although individual servers may be selected, Checks are added to all workstations at the selected Client and Site(s).

These changes appear in the Pending Actions dialog whilst awaiting synchronization with the Agent and can be reverted from there.
