Source Inheritance Settings

Source Inheritance Settings

On the Sources subtab, located at the top right-hand side, a checkbox appears that allows the node to inherit the source and source settings configured by the organization above it, or customize its own. By default, any new nodes or clients added will automatically inherit from the node above. When configuring a source, scan interval and paths, it is important to notice which node is selected on the navigation tree. Each client and node has the ability to configure its own source settings by deselecting the Inherit sources checkbox.
