To verify if a package was being downloaded from one of our preferred servers, I used to check the sdclient_task%taskid% log files under the LDClient\Data folder. These files used to say something like:
"Checking preferred server path \\%prefserver%\package" etc. Once the file was found there the next line would read:
I no longer see any of this. We are preparing to deploy Office 2010 using over 80 preferred servers in remote locations and I need to be 100% sure it is deploying from the preferred server UNC path. How can I verify the package is being downloaded from our preferred Servers with the newer log file look and feel?
I've attached a recent sdclient_task log for our Office package where no other machines on the subnet had the files in cache. Can anyone point out in the log where I can verify the files are downloading from the pref server?
Not sure if you have answered this already. but have you checked the CurrentDownloads.log in c:\program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\ on the remote machine. in there i found it shows whether the download is from a peer, Source, or Prefered server. If from a peer it specifies the IP. Not sure if this is what you are looking for but hope it helps.
