Purpose:

You receive this error after attempting to deploy a package to an external agent computer: Modified Packages can't be deployed to External Agents.

Resolution:

Currently, only unmodified Auto Download packages can be deployed to external agent computers.


  • The Auto Download package cannot have Pre or Post steps.
  • The Auto Download package cannot be converted to a standard package.
  • Any custom-built packages will also fail with this error.
NOTE:
In the future, functionality will be expanded to allow deploying customized packages to computers with a PDQ Inventory Agent in External mode.
