You can update a Management Agent's templates from its working folder by running "Update Management Agent." You may need to update your Management Agent templates to recover from unsuccessful Management Agent changes or to transfer a Management Agent between Microsoft Metadirectory Services-based servers. Management Agent templates are stored as attributes of the Management Agent object in the metaverse. By default, the Management Agent will be updated with the included templates in the Zoomserv\Data\Dsgates folder. Any customization you have performed in the Design MA area will be lost. If you have recorded your templates to the working folder, this article describes how to refresh the Management Agent with those templates.


Before following these steps, you must either:

  • Have recorded the customized Management Agent templates to the working folder and now need to restore the metaverse with your customized templates. For information about recording Management Agents templates to the working folder, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    250479 Recording Management Agent Templates in Microsoft Metadirectory Services

  • Have custom templates that you want to use in place of the current templates. You have copied them into the working folder, overriding the existing templates.

Updating a Management Agent from the Working Folder

  1. Log on to the Compass client with administrator access.
  2. Click the MA that you want to update.
  3. In the Actions panel, click Properties.
  4. On the Recording Templates tab, click to select the Update this MA from its working directory's templates located at : \Zoomserv\Data\Ds\0000000# check box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Actions panel, click Update Management Agent.
  7. In the Update Management Agent dialog box, click Yes. You should then receive a message indicating a successful update.
