Offline clients will not be notified. Offline clients that become online after the time period expires can still update components if you selected Let clients initiate component when they restart. under Event-triggered Update. Otherwise, they update components on the next schedule or if you initiate manual update.
If the OfficeScan server is unable to successfully send an update notification to clients after it downloads components, it automatically resends the notification after 15 minutes. The server continues to send update notifications up to a maximum of five times until the client responds. If the fifth attempt is unsuccessful, the server stops sending notifications. If you select the option to update components when clients restart and then connect to the server, component update will still proceed.
