Question:
When using the "Send File to Client" event, a few different problems occur. By default, this event always sends the file to the client, even if it already exists. I've been told this was not always the default behavior, and that CA MDM normally tries to avoid resending the same file if at all possible. There are settings that can be adjusted to change this behavior, but not all of them work as expected. The "Use File Differentiation " checkbox does not seem to do anything. Additionally, while the File Transfer settings can be changed and seem to keep the changes if we look at the event details after saving the channel, the settings don't reflect what we've chosen. This makes it difficult to know what the transfer settings really are.
