We have the LD agent running on devices that are reboot often, with a login to a default Windows account. I would like the agent to check for policies every time the user logs on (in case the device was reboot in the middle of a package install), so I checked that option under Agent configuration. I set the "max random delay" to 0 hours, which I hope means immediately. However, the agent did not resume an interrupted package download (using a policy-supported push) until after I performed an inventory scan. Can anyone help me with what these options are actually doing? Any tips for best practices to get an agent to check in frequently? Or should I control it from the core and change the task to run on failed devices more frequently? Thank you in advance.
reneeatfdny, have you created a local scheduler script and added it to that device? You can run C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\ldclient\localsch.exe /tasks |more on a client to see how it should look, but then change it to the policysync.exe service on the agent. Then deploying this script should allow for check in upon login.
