    1. Please provide sample values. How can I select all Unix, or all Windows agents?

      1. Hi Volker,

        To select all Unix based agents :

        • On the Agent Selection page, from the property list select “Agent Operating System”, and type unix” in the search box .

        To select all Windows based agents:

        On the Agent Selection page, from the property list select “Agent Operating System”, and type "windows" in the search box.

        Hope this helps.

        Regards,

        Rashmi
