This is usability issue that leaves Pulseway's surveillance under high suspicion.
We work exclusively in Windows servers.
My colleague has installed last week a new Pulseway Agent over a server of a new client and he forgot to report this so that I could increase the number of licences resulting that since last week a Pulseway agent from another client's backup server stopped communicating and so we where not aware that backup needed troubleshooting. In fact the server disappeared from our servers
As I understood the new Pulseway agent kicked out a random Agent already under surveillance and that means that a server that we had total confidence to be monitored was not.
I'm new in the company and this software and when I've discussed this with my colleagues they've reported to be a known issue and that sometimes the Pulseway agent that stopped being monitored would varied meaning that one server randomly would stop being monitored and then the behaviour would jump to another agent.
In the Billing/Overview section of your page it always had 72/72 and so no report of "overbooking".
For this server's agent to show again in the panel I had to re-register it.
IMO the new ones should stay offline and if this behaviour cannot be controlled, then the moment a client doesn't have licenses the agent shouldn't be able to register.
We need to be sure that we can rely on the servers where Pulseway agent is installed and configured or we cannot trust the system altogether.
Thank you for your attention.
Would love a way to silently install and run Dell command update utility to Dell endpoints to keep drivers up to date, as Dell are frequently rolling out driver updates.
Has anyone been able to make this work for them?
I've looked into it and found some sample scripts on reddit to try and edit and test. the problem I have is getting dell command update to install first, then getting the configuration file out to the required computers that need it, then running the update silently.
If someone has managed to get this working, I would love to see how you did it, or kindly ask for some sample scripts to work with?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have configured and applied default storage notification policy to all my Windows workstations that is set to send a notification when the system partition has less than 5% with priority elevated.
But all the notifications I get about storage say: The free space on disk drive C: on computer computername in group groupname - Office - Workstations' is below 15% (ex. 16.24 GB free of 118.18 GB).
How can I make the applied policy to respect the right percentage specified in the group policy?
I have one customer workstation (actually a laptop) that I cannot assign a patch policy. All of the other systems in this customer group are fine. When I try to assign it via my mobile, I get "change OS patch policy command failed". Nor can I assign it via the Pulseway Web app - it shows "no actions available" for that one system.
I tried remotely restarting the laptop, and I tried repairing the local agent installation, but no joy.
