If an agent content update job is already running and you execute another agent content update job that has a common agent scope with the job that is already in the running state then the second job filters the common agents and runs on the remainder agents. A warning message about the filtered agents is displayed in the Message tab. For example, you create and run job 1 that has agents 1, 2, 3 and you create another job that has agents 3, 4, 5. Since agent 3 is common to both the jobs, in the second job agent 3 is filtered and the job is run on the remainder agents.
