You can manually run commands on the client computer 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.
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 left pane, right-click the group, and then click Run a command on the group > command
Click the Clients tab, right-click the computers, and then click Run command on computers > command
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.
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.
To view the command results
On the Command Status tab, select a command in the list, and then click Details.
You can also cancel a scan in progress by clicking the Cancel Scan icon in the Command column of the scan command.
