How to force a forwarder to only appear once on the forwarder management screen.

Contributor

No luck the last time I asked this question, so thought I would try again.

Is there any way to have only one entry per forwarder on the forwarder management screen regardless with how many different IP addresses a forwarder might have connected?

About the only thing you can do is select "Phone Home: Within Expected". This will show everything that is currently active. If the IP or hostname of the Forwarder is constantly changing, then the Deployment Server will keep a record of the deployment client contact but the phone home will not be active.

6.0.3 was a release only to fix the recent OpenSSL bug. The other fixes they're working on have been pushed back.

I believe that is a bug. Should be remedied in an upcoming maintenance release.

I don't get a link to the deployment server logs.

I do seem to have a perpetual message on the Forwarder Management screen which says, "One or more apps are initializing download. Please refresh later to see the accurate status of these downloads." It doesn't matter how often I refresh, this message is always there.

Yes. In the Clients Tab, If you go to All Clients, Deployed Partially then expand any of the individual clients, you should see a link to the deployment server logs that details the deployment error.

Thanks, that did clean up some of the debris.

Would this be the reason for the "deployment errors" warning notification I see on this screen?
