I am so tired of Landesk services not working like they should.I have been having so many ridiculous issues with trying to push out a 15 Mb. file. You would think that would be something landesk SD could handle but it can't. I have installed SP3 and updated all the clients on the machines which i am trying to deploy the software. And i have tried every combination of delivery method and distribution type for this program and all it says is "task queued at client for execution." Even if i set it to Multicast only i see no sign of the file on the client. I've got no time to search through hard to find log files and try to find the answers to inexplicable problems (like different agent responded, even though i KNOW the same agent is installed that is installed on every other machine).
Im not really looking for an answer because i don't really have the time because now i have to log in manually to 25 machines and install the 15 Mb. .msi file. I'm really just venting because landesk is a pain in my ass. I waste about 20% of my week trying to find out why LDMS 9 is failing at something. And it's ALWAYS something; either it's, agent issues, provisioning issues, patch issues, remote control issues, and of course, SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION issues.
if you are thinking about buying landesk management suite for your company.......DON'T! it sucks.
i know it's not worth much but that is my two cents.
