Currently when we distribute software, we do it via a schedule job. If the PC we're distributing it to is off the network, the job will fail. We then have to run the job again once the PC is back on the network. This is a pain with laptops, as we're never sure when they'll be connected to our network. So we end up having to communicate back & forth with our users to find out when they'll be on the network to distribute software packages to them.
Is there a way we can configure LANDesk so that it the computer is not on the network, the job goes into a pending status and continues onces the computer is connected? This is a much better option that just failing the job as it will make distributing packages to laptops much easier.
Use the Policy supported push delivery method. This will send to those that are online and those that aren't will receive it when they come back online (as long as your agent configuration has a regular policy check configured).
