To help balance the workload of the Management Server, you can change the location of the action associated with either some of the jobs to the Managed Client or Proxy server, or all jobs to the Managed Client.

Note:  SMTP Mail must be enabled for the Action_SMTPMail Knowledge Script on the Managed Client or Proxy server to which you change the location of the action.

To change the location of the action associated with some jobs to the Managed Client or Proxy server:

  1. Right-click the Action_SMTPMail Knowledge Script and select Properties.
  2. Select the Actions tab.
  3. In the location bar, select MC or Proxy.
  4. Click OK to update the selected job.

To change the location of the action associated with all jobs to the Managed Client:

  1. From the Operator Console, click File > Preferences > Repository.
  2. Select Set Default location to Managed Client.


The Management Server is overloaded, and might only be able to deliver alerts for events occurring on itself.
