Windows Intune Client Components

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

When you enroll a client computer in the Windows Intune service, Windows Intune schedules the download and installation of additional agents, applications, and components to the client computer. These agents, applications, and components are updates to the initial Windows Intune client enrollment software package.

You can view the updates in the Windows Intune administrator console.

The following table describes the agents, applications, and components that are installed by Windows Intune.


Update name Description

Update for Microsoft Online Management Components

This component helps Windows Intune update additional components that manage the client computer.

Windows Intune Endpoint Protection

These agents help protect the managed computer against potential threats by using real-time protection, automatic scans, and definition updates.

Windows Intune Monitoring Agent

These agents monitor the health of the managed computer, and raise alerts to report current and potential problems.

Microsoft Online Management Policy Agent

These agents let you configure settings on the managed computer and review information about software and hardware assets.

Update for Microsoft Online Management

This agent helps update the software on the managed computer.

Windows Intune Center

The Windows Intune Center lets users of the managed computer request remote assistance from administrators by using Remote Assistance through Microsoft Easy Assist v2, manage how some updates are deployed to the computer, and start scans for malware.

Remote Assistance through Microsoft Easy Assist is not supported on computers that are running Windows 8. Users cannot request assistance from computers that are running Windows 8, nor can administrators respond to a Remote Assistance Session Request on a computer that is running Windows 8.

Windows Intune Notification Service

This agent helps deliver administrator-initiated commands to the managed computer.

For the correct operation of the managed computers, all the agent updates will be installed on the computers that are managed by Windows Intune. The updates apply to both the x86 and x64 architectures. When the agent updates are downloaded and installed, the status of this process is reported to Windows Intune. If any agent update is installed incorrectly, a message is displayed in the Windows Intune administrator console.
