You can use a Preferred Server for storing your Distribution Packages and Patches on a Local Store,
so if you have a WAN Site, it will change the Download automatically to the Local Store, instead of using
the WAN Link and going to the Core Server.
For Filesynchorization you can use the internal Landesk Content Replication or Tools like Rsync/Robocopy etc.
You can found more Infos on this from Paul Hoffmann here:
Landesk Content Replication:
Thank you for your immediate reply.
Please send me the document of installation procedure of Preferred servers at remote locations if you have.
kindly let me know the recommended system requirements to install a preferred server to manage 2000 computers.
Thanks & Regards
Please read the Information inside the Links, I have given you. There you find all Information you need.
I know it's much information...but at the End, you need to configure only a few important things (like IP, Replicator etc.) and it will run.
This is not really a Installation, more making a Share on the Target and configure the Options inside Landesk Content Replication Window.
Preferred Server Target Configuration
- Only one Replicator can be assigned to each Preferred server.
- A Replicator can be any Windows-based managed node.
- You need enough Diskspace for your Software and Patches
The Preferred server MUST have a share EXACTLY matching the share name of the source. For example, if the Source path is \\CoreServer\ldlogon\patch, then the Preferred server must have a share named ldlogon.
Hope this is helpful for you.
Thanks for reply. I gone through the documents.
I understand that Preferred server is used to reduce the WAN bandwidth utilization while deploing patches/softwares at remote locations.
But my Team Lead said that, apart from this task it stores inventory information on it's local database. Is it correct??
As per your documents, Preferred server contains only a shared folder. So, kindly let me know how it can store inventroy information.
Thanks & Regards
Thank you very much for your support.
