Feature request: Resend update button

We have lot's of probes that use unreliable cell connections for their connection back to the core server. When we update our version we often have to run the update manually at multiple sites as it doesn't download the first time. I just noticed now that I can re-trigger the auto update with a restart of the core service. I would like a way for it to trigger remotes to update without a restart to the core. The best would be if I could trigger an update for individual remotes. Also can the download mechanism for the probe update be a bit more robust often it is just a matter of restarting the download. Currently it seems that if there is a short disconnect the download just fails instead of retrying.

I know this like like 4 feature requests but it would make updating much better and painless.

Thanks, Andreas

Hello,

thank you very much for your KB-Post. Thank you very much for your feedback. We do like this request, and agree that it would be useful. We've added it to the wishlist. Please bear with us, I cannot name an ETA for such a "Retry-Probe-Update" in the moment.

best regards.
