The Check-in Policy page defines group ID policies controlling the minimum, maximum and fixed values allowed for a variety of options. These policies prevent users from selecting settings that place undue stress on Windows servers running the KServer.
Changing One Field at a Time
If you need to make a change to only one setting in a group:
Min/Max Age for Log Entries
These values determine the minimum and maximum values that can be entered in the Set Max Age for Log Entries options in Agent > Log History. To remove a value, enter
These values determine the minimum and maximum settings that can be entered in the Check-In Period setting of Agent > Check-In Control. To remove a value, enter
KServer Address (0 for editable) - Primary/Second
If these checkboxes are checked and DNS names or IP addresses are entered in these fields and Update clicked, the KServer column of selected group IDs display fixed DNS names or IP addresses. Users are required to use these fixed IP addresses in the Primary KServer and Secondary KServer fields in Agent > Check-in Control.
Best Practices: Although a public IP address may be used, Kaseya recommends using a domain name server (DNS) name for the KServer. This practice is recommended as a precaution should the IP address need to change. It is easier to modify the DNS entry than redirecting orphaned agents.
Allow automatic account creation for selected Group ID
If enabled, new machine ID accounts are created automatically for selected group IDs as soon as the machine's agent checks into the KServer the first time using a new machine ID name and selected group ID.
For example, an agent is installed on a new machine. The group ID
Note: Allow automatic account creation for selected Group ID is enabled by default.
To enable automatic account creation for selected group IDs:

This option only displays for master role users. If enabled, new machine ID accounts are created automatically for group IDs that do not have any Check-in Policy defined, or for agents with a group ID that does not yet exist, as soon as the machine's agent checks into the KServer the first time using a new machine ID name.
Note: Allow automatic account creation for groups without a policy is enabled by default.
