A Configuration Manager 2007 client computer downloads its client policy on a schedule. By default, clients download policy every 60 minutes. This schedule is configured on the Computer Client Agent Properties: General Tab.

However, you might want selected clients to have a more frequent polling interval. To achieve this, configure a collection-specific policy polling interval, which will then apply to members of that collection.

Use the following procedure to specify a collection-specific policy polling interval.

If a client computer is a member of multiple collections with different policy polling intervals, it will use the shortest configured interval.

To configure a collection-specific policy polling interval

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Collections.

  2. In the results pane, right-click the collection you want to modify, and then click Modify Collection Settings.

  3. In the Advanced tab of the Collection Properties dialog box, select Enable collection specific policy polling interval, and then specify the required policy polling interval in minutes.

  4. Click OK to close the Collection Properties dialog box.
