I'm new to LDMS and have 9.0SP1 running.
Coming from a GHOST background I'm used to having my TASKS organized into well-described containers. Whenever I need to run a task I go find it and make sure it is pointing to the correct group of computers or a single computer and then I execute it. In GHOST, if I change an aspect of the task and execute it without saving it then I get a COPY of the task, but it gets placed in a TEMP folder of sorts which gets cleaned out regularly. My organization of TASKS stays very clean it is always easy to find what I need.
In LDMS I have TEMPLATES and SCHEDULED TASKS. I can't find any real LINKS between the two but I do know that my TEMPLATES become TASKS. I'm fine with that for the purposes of this post.
My observations include the fact that whenever I use WinPE Provisioning from a PXE boot I will get a LOCKED COPY or CLONE of a template. Heck, I think I may even get a copy whenever I fire off the task from within the console and I don't use WinPE Provisioning.
My question is this:
what is the purpose of these LOCKED duplicate templates and HOW DO YOU GUYS KEEP YOUR STUFF CLEAN and well organized?
I find it difficult to sort through all of my templates because I have all of these duplicates. It is hard to know what the heck I have been using. Are there any strategy-related documents that you folks can point out that might address this scenario?
