Viewing which relay is assigned to a client

To see which clients are selecting which relays run the following steps:

  1. Start up the console and select the BigFix Management Domain.
  2. From the Computer Management folder, click Computers to see a list of clients.
  3. Look in the Relay column in the List Panel (this column might be hidden; in which case you might need to right-click the column headings and make sure Relay is checked). The BigFix Relay columns show information including the Relay method, service, and computer.

By default, the clients attempt to find the closest relay (based on the fewest number of network hops) every six hours.
