    Policy Status

     

    Whenever a task is run on a client we have a policy .XML and .STAT file that PolicySync.exe, SDClient, and Vulscan.exe use to know what the current status of a task is.

     

    You can see these statuses on the client in the C:\Programdata\LANDesk\Policies folder. You will two files for each task, a .XML with task inf and a .STAT with results of the last time the task ran. Inside the .STAT is the <Status> value.
