Select the Agent Mode

When you install the Windows Agent on a workstation, you select its mode of operation. The mode you select determines the Checks and features available for the device.

  • Server mode— supports the full range of 24x7 Checks and Daily Safety Checks

    If you select the Server mode for a workstation, it is charged at server prices.

  • Workstation mode—supports a subset of 24x7 Checks and Daily Safety Checks and only queries the local device

Data Overdue alerts only apply to Server mode.
Backup & Recovery Documents is only available for Workstation Mode.

For more information about the supported checks for Server and Workstation Agent modes, see Supported Checks for each Operating System.
