Software Deployment Question

Devices not listed in Show all of Managed Install

03/17/2017 730 views

I have a device i can see inventory info for and also runs patch schedules fine.
I have added this device to managed install and saved this mi.
When i look again at the mi and scrolled down to the bottom the device is not listed in the Show All.
I thought it was strange so i added this device to a label and applied the label to the MI and the same again.
Its not being listed in the show all.

I have used this mi before for other installs fine.

Any ideas as to why its not being listed?

Is the operating system of this machine selected as an option for the software you are deploying via the MI? That's the first thing to check. 

Does the machine indicate a Managed Install is pending when you add it to the MI (check the machine's inventory record)?

As for your label, if it's a smart label, it won't join the label until the next inventory. A manual label would show the machine immediately in the MI.

Thanks for the info however it seems when i returned from lunch the computer is listed there.
It just took a while for it to be listed under show all devices.
Would this be because the computer is external , i.e not in the company network?
Also the other computer that is not listed, could this be because that computer is tuned off?

  • these settings are updated during a check in. If you clicked run now the check in was forced else it needed a short period of time
