    LANDesk 9.5 SP1 - What Happened to the LDMain Share?


      We recently updated to LANDesk 9.5 SP1 by installing clean on a new Windows Server 2008-R2 VM. (Essentially we did a "side-by-side" migration. Our previous LANDesk core server, running LDMS 9.0SP4, still exists but has been de-activated.)


      My question is regarding what seems to be a change in the folder structure on our new core server. In all previous versions of LANDesk Management Suite we would see a folder structure on the core server "C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\Management Suite" where the "Management Suite" folder was shared as "LDMain". On our new core server we are seeing "C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\Management Suite" with a subfolder called "LDMain" and it is the subfolder that is shared.


      I don't think we did anything special during our latest install which would have caused this different folder structure. And I don't think we had customized our previous installs - I think the Management Suite folder always used to be shared as LDMain. So I presume that the new folder structure is there by design, but I haven't found anything in the documentation, readme, or the forums.


      This is causing a problem for us as our Help Desk staff was accustomed to using the LANDesk CSVImport utility in provisioning new computers. With this new folder structure, they don't have access to copy the miniscan files into the LDScan folder - it is no longer a subfolder of LDMain.


      Has anybody else noticed this? Any easy solutions that you can think of?
