When you setup your Scheduled Task to deploy a software title you can go into the task itself, under Distribution Package tab, and set a Preliminary, Main, and Final, as part of the package order, essentially giving you the ability to "push" up to three titles to that machine. After that you are not going to be able to push more then one task, with 3 software packages tied to it, to each PC until it has finished.
We have an Enhancement Request open on this very issue.
You can use policy tasks to push more then one set of three packages to a PC however. I go over it in the following post:
It has taken me a few months, as we are new to LANDesk, to figure out how it will actually function for my company in the best possible way. Policy has some really unique benefits, but there definately needs to be some sort of Queueing system for software "Pushes" and "Policy Supported Pushes" as seen by the response to the above Enhancement Request.
Oh and I almost forgot. You can use another module, other then Software Distribution, to deliver software. I have done it with Security and Compliance and a custom definition or you can go down the OS provisioning route outlined here.
In my opinion both of these options were no good. LDMS has a Software Distribution module and judging by the response to that Enhancement Request, LANDesk will be "Fixing" it to allow more then one Push or Policy Supported Push to one client at a time.
Thank you very much!
will try it
no i treid to install my office 2008 (Preliminary) & Cyberduck(Main) & Firfox(Final) but unfortiuntaly only office was installed and transfered to th sdcache folder on the client.
The task return this Result: No Error and Reurn code: 1101
any idea what is going wrong here?
thanks in advance
Does the Office2k8 package require a reboot? If so that may be the issue. Also make sure they all delivery individually, I am notorious for forgetting additional files as well.
no reboot for office is required and all of them can be installed individually :-(
I would check the sdclient_task###.log.. Find the task in the console, right click it, go to info and record the Task ID. After you have the Task ID navigate to C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\Data and open up the sdclient_task###.log where ### = the recorded Task ID. This should give you a step by step log on what happens during that task, from File Downloads to the command lines used to run your packages.
thanks for the tip but im using mac os.
Do you know where i can find the logs on a mac?
thanks in advance
Look for something like Applications/LANDesk.app, think if you right click LANDesk.app you can explore the contents. Not sure it has been a LONG time.
