Use the Schedule tab in the Configuration Manager 2007 Client Status Reporting dialog box to specify when client status reporting will collect policy request information from management points and run client ping against client computers to assess their status. You can also configure whether client status reporting collects information for the current Configuration Manager 2007 site or the entire site hierarchy.

This tab contains the following elements:

Collect policy request information from management points

Specifies whether client status reporting will use client pulse to connect to the site management point to collect and process policy request log files. Click Run Now to immediately perform this action, or click Schedule to define the times at which this action will run.
Ping inactive clients

Specifies whether client status reporting will use client ping to determine whether Configuration Manager 2007 clients marked as inactive are connected to the network and to check the status of the client and BITS services for clients that are found to be online. Click Run Now to immediately perform this action, or click Schedule to define the times at which this action will run.
Note
Inactive clients are Configuration Manager 2007 clients that have not reported inventory or discovery data within the time period specified in the Options tab of the Client Status Reporting dialog box.
