We are a new site with LANdesk 8.7 SP5, approx. 3000 nodes. Of those, about half of them have Deepfreesze installed. Our Deepfreeze computers are scheduled to auto power on at 11:00pm, and Deepfreeze turns on maintenance mode from 1am to 5am (basically, maintenance mode is a thaw state). We run inventory scans starting at 2am hourly, with a time restriction between 2 and 3 (am). the problem appears to be that the agents are sending in an inventory scan every time the PC reboots. We have the "At Startup using the Run key registry setting" unselected in the agent configuration.
In order to go into maintenance mode, Deepfreeze must reboot the computer. It also reboots the computer to refreeze them at the end of maintenance time. Obviously, the second reboot (and sometimes the first, depending on if the client's scan date is correct or not) is causing the next Delta inventory scans to be out of sync and rejected by the Core. Also, reboots during the day cause the same issue. Every day, we have over 1000 .SCN files in our ErrorScan folder.
We really want to keep Delta scanning turned on. Is there a way to force the agents not to run the inventory scanner during a reboot? I have not seen any documentation that even explains that this is how the inventory scanner even works. We do use the "Also run if the device's IP address changes", but the IP addresses are not changing.
How can we force the inventory scanner to only run when the IP address changes, and during our 2am Deepfreeze maintenance timeframe?
