Purpose:

You receive this error after attempting to deploy a package to a target within PDQ Inventory with an external Agent: Modified Packages Can't Be Deployed to External Agents.

Resolution:

Currently, only unmodified Auto Download packages can be deployed to a target that has an external Agent.


  • The Auto Download package cannot have Pre or Post steps.
  • The Auto Download package cannot be converted to a standard package.
  • The Auto Download package cannot have any altered Conditions.
  • Any custom-built packages will also fail with this error.
  • On the Options tab, you can modify the Scanning, Timeout, and Auto Download approval settings.
  • On the Offline Settings, you can modify the Retry Queue.
NOTE:
In the future, functionality will be expanded to allow deploying customized packages to targets with an external Agent.
