OfficeScan Agent Independent Mode Privilege

Grant certain users the OfficeScan agent Independent mode privilege if agent-server events are interfering with the users' tasks. For example, a user who frequently gives presentations can enable Independent mode before starting a presentation to prevent the OfficeScan server from deploying OfficeScan agent settings and initiating scans on the OfficeScan agent.

When OfficeScan agents are in Independent mode:

  • OfficeScan agents do not send logs to the OfficeScan server, even if there is a functional connection between the server and agents.

  • The OfficeScan server does not initiate tasks and deploy OfficeScan agent settings to the agents, even if there is functional connection between the server and agents.

  • OfficeScan agents update components if they can connect to any of their update sources. Sources include the OfficeScan server, Update Agents, or a custom update source.
