Changing the Number of AClients That get Auto-Updated
You just installed a Hot Fix that included a new AClient and you notice that as Auto Update is enabled, it only updates 15 clients at a time. You may find yourself asking, "How can I change the AClient Auto Update value from 15 clients at a time to a different value?"
When a newer version of AClient is installed into the Deployment Share, the managed computers automatically update their copy of AClient to match this newer version. Starting with Deployment Solution 6.5 Hotfix 2, the AClient Auto Update feature only updates 15 computers at a time, to reduce the network traffic used when a new version of AClient is installed.
To view or change the auto update value:
On the computer that Deployment Server is installed on, run Regedit.
Locate and select the following registry key:
Locate and double-click the UpdateAgentsConcurrentlyMax DWORD entry to edit it.
Change the value from 15 to the value that suits you. 200 is a nice round number if you are not worried about network traffic while it does the updating.
