Grant certain users the OfficeScan client roaming privilege if client-server events are interfering with the users’ tasks. For example, a user who frequently gives presentations can enable roaming mode before starting a presentation to prevent the OfficeScan server from deploying OfficeScan client settings and initiating scans on the OfficeScan client.
When clients are in roaming mode:
OfficeScan clients do not send logs to the OfficeScan server, even if there is a functional connection between the server and clients.
The OfficeScan server does not initiate tasks and deploy OfficeScan client settings to the clients, even if there is functional connection between the server and clients.
OfficeScan clients update components if they can connect to any of their update sources. Sources include the OfficeScan server, Update Agents, or a custom update source.
The following events trigger an update on roaming clients:
The user performs a manual update.
Automatic client update runs. You can disable automatic client update on roaming clients.
Scheduled update runs. Only clients with the required privileges can run scheduled updates. You can revoke this privilege anytime.
