    Note: All options in the Execution tab are disabled. The frequency can be specified only in the Description field.


You scheduled the upload of capacity data from VM Manager Tool to BigFix. The data is transferred to BigFix Inventory with each data import. If no modifications are made to VM managers, the data is uploaded according to the schedule. If you modify a VM manager, the upload is triggered shortly afterward.
