Under First Time Setup page, Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers is toggling as 'Off' when the schedule is changed from 'Shared Schedule' to a 'Date/Time'
Last Updated September 06, 2016
Customer reported that under Home>First Time Setup, "Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers" is toggling as 'Off' when the schedule is changed from Shared Schedule to a Date/Time when it was still set to "On".
Steps to duplicate: 1. Notice that under the SMP console>Home>First Time Setup>"Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers" on the top-right webpart, it shows whether the policy is on or off. By default it is set to "On" 2. Click on "Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers" and change the default schedule from "Shared Schedule" to "At date/time". Save changes. Close UI window. 3. You should see that now this is set to "Off" in the webpart 4. Open again "Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers" and you will see that it is still set to "On" 5. Change it back to "Shared schedule" and "Automatic rollout to newly discovered computers" shows it is "On" again.
The expectations are that this keeps it "On" if it was "On" already if the schedule is changed.
ITMS 8.0 HF3
Known issue. This is just UI mismatch in agent rollout policy state shown in First Time Setup Page UI if Date/Time schedule is set for agent rollout policy. The original Agent rollout policy UI shows correct state and works correctly and there is no functional effect.
This issue has been reported to Symantec Developent team. A fix is planned for a later release (cuttently targeted for ITMS 8.0 HF5)
