Have a scenario where there are remote nodes with MA agents
running. Have frequent need to send packages to "groups".
And these are large in size but agents and package size. DO
NOT HAVE a COMMAND or a RELAY Server in place yet. The
location that has got several hundred devices just eats up
all the possible bandwidth when I send to that group.

Is there any way we can schedule a package on when it should
be downloaded ... as overall cannot ask the Agent to pull
regularly it kills the bandwidth due to overload ... but
would want the server to PUSH and say ok go ahead and start
downloading now !

Any suggestions will be really appreciated. This affects all
MA users ...

Architecturally, the solution is to install a Relay server at the location
in question so that the several hundred local devices can download the
package from the Relay server over the LAN connection rather than having
each of them independently hit the Primary Command Server over the WAN
connection.

Manage Anywhere does not assume that any given device will be on-line at any
given time. This is a requirement given the target audience of managing
occassionally connected devices. With that assumption in mind, the idea of
of scheduling the download does fit the design goals. We expect the download
to happen in the background whenever the device is able to connect, but then
have the package scheduled to run at a specific time after it has
downloaded.

So, no Manage Anywhere does not allow you to schedule the download. As you
mentioned, the effective solution will be to install a Relay server.
