Viewing the policy serial number

You should check the policy serial number on the client to see if it matches the serial number that appears in the management console. If the client communicates with the management server and receives regular policy updates, the serial numbers should match.

If the policy serial numbers do not match, you can try to manually update the policies on the client computer and check the troubleshooting logs.

See Performing a manual policy update to check the policy serial number.

  1. On the management server, in the console, click Clients.

  2. Under View Clients, select the relevant group, and then click Details.
