The problem is that the LANDesk keeps installing and removing software.
We have created distribution packages to install software and have associated the uninstall package.
The software is scheduled to install via a policy, required installation and is targeted at LDAP Objects which is a group containing computer objects.
There seems to be no pattern as to when the software will be installed and removed, sometimes it will stay on the machine for days before being uninstalled. We have over a hundred packages created like this and it is a lottery as to whether the software is on the users machine or not.
The only workaround has been to clear the uninstallation association and restart the scheduled task but this only helps on machines where the software has never been installed on before. On machines which have already been affected the problem appears to persist.
This is happening on all types of distributions packages, MSI, EXE, SWD, BATCH
We are using LD8.8 & WinXP SP2 and SP3 clients. A call has been logged with LANDesk support who are trying to replicate the problem but they seem to be at a loss to explain what's going on. Has anyone else got any ideas?
