This technical document details the steps to enable the Package Source column on the Job Container Screen.

Note: This document assumes that the DSM Configuration Policy was enabled for the Neighbor Aware Software Distribution, and that software jobs have already successfully executed utilizing this functionality. The configuration policies are located as follows:

DSM/Software Delivery/Agent/Neighbor Aware Software Distribution

DSM/Software Delivery/Scalability Server/Neighbor Aware Software Distribution



 Steps to enable the Package Source column in DSM Explorer under the Job Container:

1. Open the DSM Explorer, browse to a job container and highlight a host target that was part of a Agent/Neighbor Aware Software Distribution job.                              As you can see there is no Package Source field. 



2. Go to the top of the DSM Explorer and choose View then select Choose Details 



 3. Scroll Down and locate the Package Source and enabled the checkbox and click OK.



4. In the DSM Explorer you will now see the column added under the Job container showing where and if the agent used a collaboration agent as its source for the            job. You may need to refresh the DSM Explorer for this to take effect.
