Select the workspace you want to contain the system.
This determines which resources the system can interact with. To learn more about
workspaces, refer to the access control help.
When you add a system to a workspace, all data the system produces will
automatically be stored in the workspace. SystemLink also adds all that system's
assets to the workspace.
If you want to prevent actions, such as installing software or restarting, from
executing on your client, select the client in Managed
Systems and click . These jobs will now be queued and will not execute until the
system is unlocked. You can view all jobs, including those that are currently
queued, under History.
