I am having very odd problems to distribute a software using LDMS 8.8 SP4.
It is basically a batch file that should run an .exe with additional files. Every time I deploy it, it takes forever and after it fails, there are entries in the log saying "ERROR: Additional files in packages are not supported for pre 8.5 clients" and "client version LDMS8_5 does not support deferral options" - but the client has at least v. 8.8 installed. At least, I can see this line in the log:
Mon, 14 Mar 2011 16:44:53 sdclient file version characterized as LDMS8_8_1
which I think should be prove that the client has an actual version installed.
I am doing a Push installation. In the sdmcache directory, I can see the corresponding taskmanifest....ini file (!), but the other files for the distribution will not be written there. Share and File Permissions should be OK for the server (I guess, as it is able to write the taskmanifest...ini file there...). Tried to deploy to several servers (w2k8 R2 and w2k3), with no success. I checked also proxyhost.log on the client machine, but connections do have status 200 - as far as I understood, this should be the case when OK.
Cannot see what I am doing wrong right now, any help appreciated.
