"Triggering" a heartbeat
I've got Inventory and Deploy.
If I right-click on a target in Inventory and select "Heartbeat", is a "heartbeat" event for that device supposed to be triggered in Deploy (thus triggering Heartbeat schedules), or does it just go out and check if the device is on- or off-line? IOW, does selecting "Heartbeat" just ping the machine to determine its current state, or is it supposed to "force" the state toggle as far as Deploy is concerned?
This doesn't seem "force" a Deploy heartbeat trigger in our environment, so-- how can I do so without powering off machines? I'd like to be able trigger a heartbeat event so that all schedules attached to a computer/group of computers get a "go" when I want them to, without having to power off the machines, heartbeating to find them off, then powering them back on and heartbeating again so that the state change is picked up...
Thank you, Mike
