Approval for agents indicate that the agent has exchanged certificate information with the Patch Manager server and is ready to accept commands. Agents must be approved before they can approve any actions on the remote client.

You can view all unapproved, approved, and preapproved agents in the Agents node under Enterprise.

To disable or enable automatic approvals:

  1. In the tree view in the left pane of the application, expand the Patch Manager System Configuration level.

  2. Expand the Management Groups level to find the management group you created.

  3. Select the management group from the tree view.

  4. Navigate to the Settings tab.

  5. Select Enable automatic approval of agents.

  6. In the Actions pane, click Edit.

  7. Select Enabled or Disabled.

  8. Click OK.

If you disable automatic approvals, you can manually approve agents by navigating to Enterprise > Agents and clicking Approval Management. Select the computer the agent is installed on from the list and click Approve Selected.
