This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

Due to the fragmentation of services my company splits responsibility for the SEP backend nfrastructure and the maintenance of the Endpoint Agent. As such I am currently producing process documentation for stuff the endpoint responsibility owners need to perform. I am currently doing a content and configuration update document.

I know that to force a configuration update they can right click the icon and choose "Update Configuration" or run "smc -updateconfig" from the command line. My question is does this process also force a check for updated content?

Regards,
Dean

It forces a check in so the client would look for content updates, new policies, upload logs, etc. Basically everything that happens during the normal heartbeat process (not forced). See KB article:
