How do the Advanced Client and the Legacy Client compare to each other?

0

A. Both clients include the following features: • Software inventory • Hardware inventory • Software distribution • Remote control sessions In addition, the Advanced Client offers these additional features: • Bandwidth-awareness: The new Advanced Client uses the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) technology to automatically detect the capacity of the client network connection and adjust transfer rates efficiently. The download rate is dynamically tuned to drop Systems Management Server 2003 traffic into the background as other services start using the shared link. This is supported on Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP-based clients only. Software can now be distributed to machines over slow connections without interrupting core user business functions. • Checkpoint/restart: Upon reconnection, any partial downloads to clients will continue where they left off; there is no need to restart transmissions because of a disconnected session.
