You can run commands at any time on a client or a group, such as starting 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:
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:
In the message that appears, click Yes.
To run a command from the Computer Status log
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.
To cancel a scan in progress, click Cancel All Scans from the command list.
If there are settings choices for the command that you selected, a message appears where you can configure the appropriate settings.
When you have finished configuration, click Yes or OK.
In the command confirmation message box that appears, click Yes.
In the Message dialog box, click OK.
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.
