Long story short, an application that we use issued an update that was supposed to occur automatically. However, their automatic update failed and now I have to do it manually on roughly 250 machines.
The update is extremely simple, however. All I need to do it copy files into a directory (C:\Program Files\...).
I tried doing a Batch File Distribution Package. The total size of the package is 15MB. However, due to the amount of files, it took FOREVER to copy them down to the local cache, even when coming directly from the core.
I called up my LANDesk rep/trainer and he explained two options...
1.) Creating a script using REMEXEC to copy the files from a network share down to the local machine. He felt this would be the best bet.
2.) Using the "old" LANDesk Package Builder, which he explained would most likely be hard to find.
The problem is, I have no idea where to start on this script creation (syntax, etc) or how to even deploy it. I attempted a search on the kb but couldn't seem to find any example remexec scripts.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have to have the software updated by Thursday. Therefore if I can't make headway by tomorrow, I then have to brute force this .
