Restarting an agent

Restarting the agent causes a full rescan of the selected managed computer. A full scan occurs with a restart if you have enabled this option on the Agent page in the Properties of the managed computer. See Changing the scan schedule.

Select Tools | Access Explorer Configuration.
Click Configure Access Explorer.
Open the Manage Computers tab.
Click Yes.
A red dot appears next to the managed computer and the status becomes Agent unregistered while the agent is restarted. The status updates automatically, but you also can click Refresh to update the status. When the restart is complete, the status is OK.

Understanding the status of your agent

When an agent is installed and scanning data, the Status column indicates OK and the Data State column indicates Data Available. If there is anything wrong with the agent, the state of the agent becomes unhealthy and the Status column displays text that may help with your troubleshooting.

The following table details the possible entries in the Status field:

Access Explorer objects are visible in the All Management Targets and NTFS modules only. In the Navigation pane, expand or select an Access Explorer server to view the objects.


Viewing groups and users

In the Navigation pane, expand a management server to view a list of accounts that have permissions on the managed Access Explorer server, or click an object to display the list in the Objects pane.

If a group or user is not listed, the account has no permissions on the Access Explorer server. You can add a group or user from Security Explorer. See Creating a new group and Creating a new user.
