If the SmartDeploy client cannot reach the SmartDeploy Console host via the local network after approximately 5 minutes, it tries to reach the host via the Cloud Broker service. If you would instead prefer to force a client to switch to use the Connection Type: Cloud, follow these steps.
- In the SmartDeploy Console, switch to the Computer Management workspace.
- Right-click the client that you want to set to cloud, and then click Prefer Cloud Connection.
- Allow a few minutes for the change to take effect.
After the change has taken effect, you will see the Connection Type change from Local to Cloud.
