We are on Ivanti Endpoint Management 2017.1. What I am trying to find out and understand is why when a Full Sync scan is initiated on the desktops, the agents from the PCs are communicating\reaching out to a network share where any of our primary software is installed from. Our company uses powershell scripts that when ran go to a network share to install the media from. The problem is that when we initiate a Full Sync scan on several machines we get notified immediately by our Network dept indicating that the install share is getting a lot of network traffic. This causes bandwidth issues with some of our satellite sites where bandwith is limited. The Server and Network folks all see traffic from the agents on the PCs talking to the network share. They initially assumed we were doing a massive distribution install but in all our cases we are not. Only Full Sync scan were initiated.
I would like to know what Agent setting or config defines this and to also find out if there is a way to exclude the network install share from being communicated during a Full Sync scan? If the network install share is somehow excluded what are the repercussions if any? I am hoping to find a global setting that can prevent this.
I took a copy of one of the .scn files from ldscan and opened it up in Notepad and I see lines and lines of unc path entries of all the software that is installed on that machine, from the network install share.
