i've a Question related to Scheduling Jobs:
LANDesk Environment LDMS 9.0 SP2
My Idea is to have LDAP Groups in which i or the user Helpdesk can place user or Workstation accounts to automatically install Software on.
(i know i would have to tweak the 90 days in sdmcache if this would work)
- I have packaged a Adobe Reader for testing purpose. It's an Ececutable Package. Detection is set to a specific File with specifc Versionnumber.
- I have created 2 Taks one for distribution, one for installing both rerun every hour. These Tasks validate on a specific LDAP Group.
The distribution Task runs first, distributes software to the sdmcache.
Then half an hour later the installer Task kicks in and installs the software - working fine.
soo heres the question/Problem
An hour later the distribution Task reruns checks all needed Files are already there und leave it like that (rewrites the .infos.. i know 90 days etc.)
Then the installer Task reruns und installs that software again..
How can i schedule these Taks/the installer Task in a way that it only installs the Package if it hasnt been installed already?
and i dont want to have to reopen the Task after first run to set it to failed devices or devices that never run this task..
If possible i'd like to have these 2 Tasks run every hour and only on Machines where the Software hasnt been installed it gets installed..
Like user calls helpdesk "I need Acrobat Reader" - Helpdesk adds Machine in LDAP Group - An hour later Software gets deployed and later installed.
I dont wanna touch these Tasks again (only for new Software Package)
Im sorry if this is a dumb question.. i havent found anything even with google and to worsen it.. i havent had a Trainig Course in LANDesk..
Thanks in Advance
