Distributing the Device Information

You can distribute device information to the client machines that are registered as destinations. You can also specify a time at which to automatically distribute the device information. To perform these operations, log in with Administrator privileges. Also, because TLS encryption is used when distributing device information to the client machines, make sure to configure the TLS settings on the client machines before performing the procedures described below. Configuring the Key and Certificate for TLS
If the System Manager ID and PIN of the client machine are different from that of the host machine, the device information cannot be distributed. Changing the System Manager ID and PIN
It may take several minutes to prepare for the device information distribution process, or to update the information after it is received. Do not turn OFF the machine until the preparation or update process is complete. Doing so may cause the machine to malfunction.
The setting update screen is displayed on the client machine that receives the device information, and no operations can be performed until the update is complete. It is recommended that you distribute the device information at a time when there are no users.
