Hi members of the community,
I have a problem to apply the PolicyUpdate.1.exe Patch on the core server. After applying the MiniRollup 05-08 i wanted to execute PolicyUpdate.1.exe as described:
CR00001688 adds support for Visual Basic scripts to software distribution. The 8.8 update patch includes an automatic update application for the managed nodes: PolicyUpdate.1.exe
This application serves two purposes:
- A self-contained and self-extracting package to update the needed portions of the managed node
- Install the policy update on the core server
When installed on the core server, all agents will download and process the new policy update application when policy.sync is run.
To install this package on the core server run the following command line:
PolicyUpdate.1.exe -setup <url> <ldmainpath>
This should be run with the current working directory set to the ldmain directory (so the PolicyUpdate.1.exe application can find the lddwnld library).
The <url> should be the http location from which the policy update application is to be downloaded. For example, if the core name was "mycore" and the update package was placed in ...ldmain\landesk\files the URL would be:
The <ldmainpath> is the path to which the ldmain share points (by default c:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagmentSuite).
If this update is not configured on the core and a Windows Script Host package is deployed via policy, the policy invoker will not be able to create an instance of the remote operation object that handles Windows Script Host packages and the policy will fail.
If i run PolicyUpdate.1.exe -setup <url> <ldmainpath> nothing happens (with the correct url and ldmainpath). If i don´t use <ldmainpath> then a log and msi file are created but the msi-file has zero-size and therefore the execution of this file fails. What I am doing wrong?
