We have seen now for a few months that the links between workstations and the sofware pakages get lost. Let me explain how we proceed for the sofware distribution:
- in the public devices, we have created for each application a similar group
- we link those groups to the scheduled applications
We have noticed that some PCs tend to disapear from those groups. For example, we have a pakage called "Trend Micro - Virus" that should be linked to each PC. We have about 400 PCs, but about 300 do no longer appear in the group list.
See attachments: landesk.jpg shows the "Trend Micro..." group that contains 118 computers, compared to the landesk2.jpg that shows about 450 computers. At least 400 were members of that group and we have not deleted or destroyed the lost 300...
Another exemple: every PC should have between 15 and 30 applications linked to it through groups. In some cases, the PC has no more than 1 or 2 links yet, probably the last created links.
It really seems that after a while the groups loose some members (PCs).
Has someone experienced that ?
Where is the problem located ?
Thanks for any advice, reply, solution...
