Run Checks from the Dashboard

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

Windows Agent 8 introduced the option to (re)run the Daily Safety Checks from the Dashboard. Once enabled, a command is sent to the Agent during its next 24x7 upload cycle with the Daily Safety Checks running after this command is received.

 

This was expanded upon from Agent 9 with the ability to immediately re-run all Checks (both the 24x7 and Daily Safety Checks) from the Dashboard via the Persistent Outbound Connection mechanism and further enhanced to only run the specified checks in Agent 10.5.7.
