Force a Cloud Connection

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.

  1. In the SmartDeploy Console, switch to the Computer Management workspace.
  2. Right-click the client that you want to set to cloud, and then click Prefer Cloud Connection
  3. 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
