Question:

How are Policies distributed down from the Enterprise ?

Environment:
CA Client Automation - All Versions
Answer:

There are three types of Policies:

 

Event Based Policies: These are Policies based on Events

          For Example:    Last Update of Asset Jobs, Signature Files, or Collect Jobs

                                 Event Policies are AM Policies and get replicated thru the Download Replication Job

Missing Policy at DM:  Was the Policy sealed ? Is Download Replication running at the DM ?

 

 

Query Based Policies: These Policies are based on DSM Queries

          For Example:   Queries based Hardware changes, Job Status, or Software Inventory changes

                                Query Policies are AM Policies and get replicated thru the Download Replication Job

Missing Policy at DM:  Was the Policy sealed ? Is Download Replication running at the DM ?

 

 

Software Based Policies:

          For Example:    Send a SD package to a group to upgrade Agents or a specific Software 

                                 These Policies are SD Based and get Distributes thru Software Deployment

Missing Policy at DM:   Was the Policy sealed?
