What version/SP? anything the temp files that you could trace back to a scheduled task (if not I would turn on xtrace for sdclient to see what is going on)? Is Virus Scan maybe impeding a LANDesk Service or EXE? Never seen this one before.
Using Version 9.0 SP3. It appears to be associated with sdistbat.exe. The naming convention for the file does not seem to be related to a task ID that I can tell.
Are these windows 7 machines with UAC turned on? Do you have any post patches installed?
We too have noticed this. Any news on its cause?
We have seen it on XP machines not sure about 7 yet will check. Again running LD9 SP3
