Device configuration

Any modifications to the device configuration are carried out in the Scout Console. They can relate to a particular device, to a particular OU or to all devices.

Modifying device configuration

  1. Open the device configuration (Setup) dialog for the relevant devices.
    For further information, see Accessing device configuration in the Scout guide.
  2. Switch to the relevant tab and edit the relevant options.
  3. Confirm with Apply and OK.

On the restart of the relevant Windows devices, the Scout Agent for Windows identifies modifications of the configuration. Normally, the modifications become active after another restart.

Initial state

Any modifications to the configuration can be undone by resetting the Windows client to initial state by means of the relevant remote command. For Windows Embedded devices, the initial state corresponds to the status right after installing the Windows Embedded image.
