5.5 Agent Updates from Kace 'Enabled' checkbox unchecked?
I just upgraded to 5.5 this morning. Will run the hotfix shortly.
On 4/26/2013 I noticed the Settings > K1000 Agent > Agent Updates from Kace > Enabled [checkbox] was unchecked. I checked it then. The Update Broken Agents and Deploy to All Machines checkboxes were already checked.
After the upgrade today, I noticed the Enabled checkbox is unchecked again. Not sure if it happened in the interim or by way of the 5.5 upgrade.
When I check it and try to save, I get the prompt "You have not limited the distribution to any labels or machines. Deploy to all machines?"
What's that mean? If I have a machine in Kace, then is not already running the agent and shouldn't it get an update if one is available?
When the KACE Appliance receives a new update it will un-check the box automatically so that you can choose when to deploy and you can also limit deployment for testing purposes.

Our upgrade turned it off. I asssume it is a saftey so you do not start pushing the new cleint till you are ready to do that. The warning about no label appiled is a standard question so you are aware that you are sending something to all machines in kace.
