@jgstew - Just came across these and figure they are applicable: -!/wiki/Tivoli%20Endpoint%20Manager/page/Client%20Refresh%20and%20Reset - Based on the activity I see in the client logs, this action forces a full report to be sent (as per the documentation) and it seems to grab the latest version of the actionsite.

I believe this forces the client to update all properties, but I don't believe it does the equivalent of a UDP notification or a command poll, though I could be wrong about that.
