Hey Casper, so you want the site admins to be able to delete specific devices from Task A but not an LDAP query from Task A? I'm assuming you already know that removing one device that is part of a query will remove the whole query? I don't think you can seperate it down to that level.
Also if you are using the web console then there is currently a bug in the permissions and everyone can see everything as public. Patch released last week available through support.
Thanks for the quick reply.
New to landesk, nope didn't know that. It will make us think about the site rigths we gave our site administrators.
Is this a bug ? or how is this possible in a tool like this, how do uinstall association work when you have a query for uninstall will it uninstall al workstations because it doesnt see the query anymore.
Are they gonna fix it ?
No it's not a bug. You can either add a query and all the devices are kind of "joined" to that one query. If the task hasn't run yet it, you will just see unknown. If you remove any device from the task that was determined by the query it will warn you that it will remove the whole query. Alternatively, run the query and select all and drag them into the task. This obviously won't be dynamic though.
I recommend not using uninstall associations for critical business apps / tasks and especially not if other people are able to control rollout tasks. We use them for little things that aren't critical like turning on and off xtrace logging. We had major issues with applicaitons being installed, uninstalled, installed, uninstalled etc. in the past so removed all uninstall associations. and yes remove the query and the uninstall association will kick in and uninstall from all workstations that had that policy.
