Ok remember back in the old days when Software Distribution changed big time (7.0 -> 8.0) ? We did a in place upgrade of LANDesk, and when it went through and created delivery methods it chose:
Optional - As desired - 1 through 38
Required - Once - 1 Through 11
We have numerous Scheduled Tasks pointing to these auto generated delivery method names. I've been living with this for some time and it works, but I can't stand it any more and want to change it to our Standard Delivery Methods. Seems simple enough:
Find the old and new DeliveryMethod_idns in the DeliveryMethod Table.
Change the DELIVERYMETHOD_IDN field in the LD_TASK table from old to new.
So a couple of questions:
Is this safe?
Any other dependencies (I can't see any) I need to be aware of?
Do I have to restart the task when I finish? If yes is there a way to programmatically do this?
So why don't I do this manually? Well it is a couple of hundred tasks on multiple cores
Thanks. BTW 8.7 SP3.
