    push agent to umanaged devices

      How do I push agent to unmanaged devices? I can see the devices I want to push the agent to under unmanaged device discovery but I can't drag them to a task.

          So you *CAN* push them out into a "deploy agent" type task - but I'd argue strongly against wanting to do so.

           

          Usually MUCH better to grab devices via GPO & advanced agent (for instance).

           

          The reason a PUSH is the "last resort" to go to is that it's VERY old tech (it's essentially just an RPC / Remote Procedure Call) and does NOT play nice with networks (no peer download, no byte-level checkpoint restart, just "copy it down" without any bandwidth saving) and not much/any resilience if things should go wrong.

           

          It'll WORK (as long as you give scheduler the relevant credentials -- but it should usually be the last option to go for, for reasons stated above.
