Introducing Client Management services
Running a command on a client
Client Management Services keeps track of the owner of a client by storing the user ID in the Client Management database. If a currently registered client attempts to connect to Client Management services using a different user ID than the current owner, the current client is deleted and the client is registered with the new user ID.
Deleting a client
When you delete a client from the Client Management Server, all task history, inventory data, and retrieved files are purged from the server. If the client connects again, it will register again as a new client.
