    LANDesk 9.6 SP1 Provisioning Custom Messages issue

    ndtsuk_dean Apprentice



      I have an app incorrectly installed with incorrect options. I have created a provisioning template which uninstalls, then reboots (as it will not reinstall untill rebooted), reinstalls with correct options and updates to latest patch version.


      The problem is this is a business critical app used constantly by most users so I need to notify users before running anything with the option for them to defer. I have created the provisioning task which works successfully but when I schedule the task in the delivery methods it only shows options for legacy "Delivery Methods" so I created a new one with options to defer and custom messages etc but nothing happens on client machine the template just runs and completes!?


      I create a TEST UI template which simply creates a directory and screenshots below but as mentioned it just runs without any notification to user? What do I need to do for this to work?????


      I know in the prov template you can show UI but all this does is pop up with default provisioning screen without any prompt and just runs straight away.

          OK it does not seem this is possible via what I assumed is the simple way. Provisioning tasks seem to be "PUSH" only run but I don't understand what push methods they use as it did not seem to matter what I changed in the scheduled task.


          However once created a provisioning task you can then run Distribution, deploy a "New distribution package" and select "New Provisioning Package" then schedule that and use whatever delivery methods/settings required.


          I have also set up within the provisioning task a execute file action which loads a *.hta file and pops up with a message and I have a "Proceed" button which the user has to click and the task will halt until this is done so I have sorted my original problem.
