"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes it is enabled.

No errors, I see some message indicating they are talking to each other. It could be I am not being patient.

This is a test vm, I will check tomorrow night if they are applied on rest of them.

Thanks!

Do you mean server or client log?

Most client still did not install or down the updates, I am going to wait one day to see if it happens. Most clients are  mobile so that may be tough for me to get the logs.
