  1. Thanks for your answer! This is a pretty convoluted solution that doesn't lend itself to automation very well. We have over 1000 clients to manage and I'm not a fan of manual Rube Goldberg machines in ops, but some useful techniques in your answer anyway It would be even more useful if uninstalling a PW client with the MSI (what Intune does) also removed it from the web app, because as far as I know only the other way around works now. I.e. when you remove a client from the web app while it's online, the client will uninstall itself. Correct me if I'm wrong ... !
  2. Wake on LAN generally does not traverse gateways since it's a UDP broadcast. The only way to get around this by-design limitation is to the enable routing of broadcasts between subnets in your router.
  3. Hi all. We are deploying the preconfigured Pulseway v9.x agent with Intune (MSI file), and that works well. However, whenever we do an Intune "Fresh start" on a client that has the Pulseway agent installed and working, we get a duplicate entry for the client in the web app. I assume it's because technically the agent gets reinstalled by Intune and in the process gets a new value in HKLM\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\ClientIdentifier. Now, because the new and the old install is indistinguishable from each other in the web app, it's almost impossible to know what entry should be removed and what entry should stay. Is there a way to identify these obsolete entries in the web app, or maybe look up the client identifier value somewhere? Or maybe some other method we can use to clean up duplicated hosts that will never, ever come back online?
  4. For those who end up in this thread looking for automated configuraton of deployed macOS agents: According to Pulseway support it's simply not possible, and there are no config files or terminal commands to tinker with either. Manual agent configuration is the only way. At least that's the case right now. If you come here from the future, please feel free to update this thread with new information.
  5. I am also interested in automatic configuration of the macOS agent after installing it. The manual config is pretty cumbersome in large Mac shops. Are there e.g. any of the Pulseway or PulsewayAgent executables that take command line arguments, or is everything done in the GUI? If they don't take cmdline arguments, where is the actual configuration with authentication user, custom server, organization, site and device group stored in the macOS file system?
  6. Thanks a lot! That made all the difference. So obvious ...
  7. Hi all. A colleague of mine have created a patch management policy and assigned it to several groups of computers. This works as indented and have made everyone happy However, if I create a new patch management policy it's impossible for me to go to Patch management -> Agents status, search for a group and change the patch policy. When I hover on the "Change Policy" or "Remove Policy" buttons, the mouse pointer transforms into a "forbidden" sign and the tooltip says "Disabled by policy". What policy is that, and how can I assign a new patch management policy to a group? I have the admin role in the Pulsway portal, and I'm able to edit patch policies.

    Regarding the storage of MSI files for 3rd pary installs/updates; can we store the MSI on a non public web server on the local network, or does it have to be publically available on the internet?
