I believe for the RA to be a true Remote Administrator the workstations have to check to see if they match the policy on the server. Right now you have to push configurations to each workstation but I have over 1500 and that's impossible to check each one. Yeah I can push config files to each one but you can have multiple scheduled jobs to run. That's not that big of a deal if it's just for updates but it is if it's two scan jobs running at the same time. Let's say you modify a configuration file to change the update server and you push it out to the workstations. If you have a scheduled scan job already on the workstation and there's one on the new one config file (all you did was change the update server) you are going to have two scan jobs.
