You can manually run commands at any time, such as starting or canceling a scan. On managed clients, the commands that you run from the management server override the commands that the user runs. The order in which commands are processed on the client computer differs from command to command. Regardless of where the command is initiated, the commands are processed in the same way.
You run these commands from the following locations:
The Clients page.
The Computer Status log. You can run some commands such as Cancel All scans and Start Power Eraser Analysis from the Computer Status log only.
If you start a scan, you can also cancel it immediately.
To run commands on the client computer from the Clients page
In the console, click Clients.
Do one of the following actions for groups or computers:
In the message that appears, click Yes.
Click Monitors > Logs > the Computer Status log type, and then click View Log.
Select a command from the Command list box, select the computers, and then click Start.
You can cancel an in-progress scheduled scan or a scan that you started by clicking Cancel All Scans from the command list.
If the command is not queued successfully, you may need to repeat this procedure. You can check to see if the server is down. If the console has lost connectivity with the server, you can log off the console and then log back on to see if that helps.
