Handling Offline Target Computers for Deployments

There are several PDQ Deploy features that you can use to handle deployments to target computers that are offline:

Heartbeat schedules: A PDQ Deploy schedule trigger that deploys packages to target computers when they come online. (This feature requires Pro or Enterprise mode for both PDQ Deploy and PDQ Inventory.)

Retry Queue: Target computers that are offline during a deployment can be automatically placed in the Retry Queue. (Requires Enterprise mode.) PDQ Deploy retries deployments to computers in the queue according to your settings.

Wake-on-LAN: You can use Wake-on-LAN (WOL) to start up offline target computers before deployments. (Requires PDQ Deploy in Pro or Enterprise mode and PDQ Inventory.)
