FYI, I have ran into issues with Lotus installs that had undocumented issues until you opened a support ticket. In some cases, it was a server side issue that required a client side fix but the client side install did not support a silent install/upgrade or had other issues that were undocumented.
It sounds like you are having a couple problems and my guess is that the msi may require a reboot when completing. If your not using a reboot=reallysupress switch or alike, then you may want to look at that.
Othersiwe, I see you have a few options here.
A provisioning script.
Batch file that contains an installation script to complete the task in sequence.
Some work better than others and it depends on your skill in scripting or knowledge of LANDesk features.
I'm just trying a batch file installation now. I don't really like doing it this way though as it's deviating from the way that MSI packages are supposed to be deployed in the product. We'll see how it goes though.
Btw, I think the fact that it's Lotus Notes is actually irrelevant. If the installations are run manually a reboot certainly isn't required. In this case though we want to force one to ensure that the Notes single sign-on service is running.
Wonder if this would work. Three packages - Lotus Notes, Fix, and a reboot script. Use :
- Prelim - Lotus Notes
- Main - Fix
- Final - Reboot Script
