I am using the Advance Agent from Preferred Servers and did not have to do anything in that document. The only thing I did was change the location of where my agent is located in the Advance Agent UI
I could create multiple advanced Agents and change the location in the GUI during the built of the agent.
I wanted to avoid creating multiple agents
No need to create different agents so they point to a specific location. I have one agent that I use for all laptops\desktops. In the download path, I specify the location on my core server where I keep the agent executable. This path must also be the same, directory wise, as it would be on a preferred server.
Did try this but it seems that it did not work.
The path is the same directory wise on my preferred server as it is on the core. I can successfully replicate the agent to the pref.server.
I will give it another try.
Thank you for your responses.
I Confirm that configuring preferred server as described in the document mentioned doesn't work anymore
I'm using the same method that you create scheduled tasks and pointed to the preferred server where's Advanced agent. What is happening to me is the task success status, but some machines are not managed.
Important that this only occurs with some machines.
