Configurations

The Configurations page lists all configurations that have been identified on the inventoried devices. The Published column reflects if the configuration has been created and deployed via the Admin Console (Yes) or not (No).

When a new (or updated) configuration is saved and deployed, it is sent as a one-time job to all computers with that configuration that are known at that particular point in time. To have the configuration sent to any new computers that might show up later on, create an agent update instead and add the configuration file as a support file.

Agent configuration templates for all platforms are provided via the Snow Update Service (SUS). They are downloaded to the Snow Inventory Master Server by the SUS client and, by default, put in the folder:

%ProgramData%\SnowSoftware\Inventory\Resources\Agent Configuration Templates
