Running commands on client computers from the console
You can manually run commands on the client computer at any time, such as starting or canceling a scan. On managed clients, the commands that you run from the management server override the commands that the user runs. The order in which commands are processed on the client computer differs from command to command. Regardless of where the command is initiated, the commands are processed in the same way.
You run these commands from the following locations:
- TheComputer Statuslog. You can run theCancel All scansandStart Power Eraser Analysiscommands from theComputer Statuslog only.

If you start a scan, you can also cancel it immediately.
