Configuring the management server to collect information about the applications that the client computers run

You can enable learned applications for a group or a location. The clients then keep track of every application that runs and send that data to the management server.

Note:

The Mac client does not monitor the applications and the services that run on Mac computers.

You can set up a notification to be sent to your email address when each client in a group or location runs an application.

See Setting up administrator notifications.

Note:

You can modify this setting only for the subgroups that do not inherit their policies and settings from a parent group.

To send the learned applications list to the management server for a group

  1. In the console, click Clients.

  2. Under View Clients, select a group.

  3. On the Policies tab, click Communications Settings.

  4. In the Communications Settings for group name dialog box, make sure Learn applications that run on the client computers is checked.

  5. Click OK.

To send learned applications to the management server for a location

  1. In the console, click Clients.

  2. Under View Clients, select a group.

  3. Under Location-specific Policies and Settings, select the location, and then expand Location-specific Settings.

  4. To the right of Communications Settings, click Tasks, and then uncheck Use Group Communications Settings.

    Checking this setting enables you to create a location setting rather than a group setting.

  5. Click Tasks, and then click Edit Settings.

  6. In the Communications Settings for location name dialog box, check Learn applications that run on the client computers.

  7. Click OK.
