I've cross posted this to http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-1400#comment-19930 so apologies for the bad etiquette but I thought I might be more traffic over here.
I am trying to use this technique to upgrade from 9.5 to 9.5 SP2. I have upgraded the core and done the ‘Rebuild All’ in Agent Configuration. I have downloaded the update/definition, as well as the LD95-SP2-Client and LD95-SP2-Console ‘Detection Rule’. The definition/update is the in the Scan folder as well as a custom group, which the agent on the machines is configured to look at. The definition does not have a X or ? on it. I have also enabled global autofix. My devices have agent 18.104.22.168 installed. However, the devices do not seem to install the update. All other patches in those folders install fine. The machines are configured to scan every night and it’s been 3 days since I made the patch available. If I do a ‘Patch and compliance scan now…’ (right click) of the device it installs it. The scan and repair window pops up and I see that it detects it.
Is there a functional difference between right clicking and choosing patch and compliance scan now and the agents doing a scan every night? Or between the scan that the devices do every night vs. going to patch and Compliance and creating a scheduled scan (Create a task, security scan…, Create a scheduled task)? It seems like they would all be equivalent but maybe I am missing something.
