    Trying to use OSD without installing LDMS agent

    Apprentice

      Hi,

       

           I need to push an OSD to several devices, but I do not want to install the LDMS agent in the same task. If I try to save the task without filling in the agent details, I get an error message and it won't let me save.

       

           I've raised this with support, but they tell me this is by design. I'm sure I used to be able to do this though.

       

           Does anyone have any ideas how I can create a OSD without being forced to install the agent, and therefore uninstall it later?

       

      TIA

       

      Paul

          When you save it using the GUI, the landesk agent install gets written to the sysprep file.  All you would need to do is find your OSD script, right click on the script and choose advance edit.  2 windows should pop up.  One is the actual OSD script, the other is the sysprep file.  Just delete the lines that is installing the agent.

           

           

          On an XP sysprep file it would look like this:

           

           

          [GuiRunOnce]
          Command0="c:\ldsleep.exe 30"
          Command1="net use \\coreserver\ldlogon password /u:domain\user"
          Command2="cmd /q /c \\coreserver\ldlogon\wscfg32.exe /F /L /STATUS /NOREBOOT"
          Command3="cmd /q /c del /q c:\ldsleep.exe"
          Command4="cmd /q /c del /q c:\ldiscan.cfg"
          

           

           

          Manually edit and then save the inf, something like this:

           

           

          [GuiRunOnce]
          Command0="cmd /q /c del /q c:\ldiscan.cfg"
