    For Deployments

    Select the target machine in the tree on the left. Deployments are scheduled on the target machine.

    For Scans

    Select the Console machine in the tree on the left. All agent-less scans are stored in the Console's scheduler. This means that even if you are scanning a different target machine, you still select the Console machine from the tree.
