Last night I attempted to run an update package on about 3000 of our clients. The package itself it is an SWD package and we run a similar upgrade about once every two months.
This time the job did not appear to start. When I got in this morning the job was showing with the individual PC names in the job (not the query names as is usual before a job starts). There was no record of it in ldlog and the pcs had not started. Looking at the job the date and time were correct for last night at 3am.
Usually I would suspect that the scheduler service had not been running but several other routine jobs starting both before and after the job had run.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can work out what happened as I am at a bit of a loss. We are on 8.7 SP 5 but with SP 4 agents (at the moment)
