The closest I got is by creating a recurring task (to those that did not try to run) every hr. or so.
You can also run a script to run policysinc.exe after install.
That will probably be the best rout to go. I was hoping I wouldn't have to monitor 2 separate tasks since we have a bunch of laptop users and they are on/off the network so often. Thanks for the suggestion.
Number of ways to do what you are asking. While the method Carlos is mentioning can work, I prefer a more direct way.
I do this now by right-clicking the Agent Configuration and going to "Advance edit". From there you can add a command like "FILE1005=[File Name], %DEST%\[File Name]". Note, %DEST% is a variable that points to the ldclient directory on the client. This will take a file in the ldlogon directory on the core and place it in the ldclient directory on the client during agent installation. If the source file is not in the ldlogon directory, you can specify a path.
Also, i've had better luck placing the command above under a post copy section such as "[Policy Management Post Copy]"
Another alternative is to also create a custom definition with a copy command and the file as an additional file. Hope this all makes sense.
I like the Custom Definition idea. That way I can just have it auto fix when detected. I started playing around with one but I can't seem to get it to detect anything. I have a task that runs at 3:00 am every morning on all machines and it looks for a VBS script that will reboot the system if a specific Registry value exists. When I install the new version of the client this vbs script gets deleted so I would like to copy it back over. I have attached my Custom Definition (DailyReboot VBS File Missing.ldms) to the Post, would you be willing to see what I may have done wrong?
Took a quick look and I can't say I saw anything that stood out as being wrong. One suggestion that I do have is to use the "Additional Files" section and point to the vbs on the server. This will download that file to the sdmcache director on the client. Then change your copy command to point the source to the sdmcache directory. Should look like this
dest C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\LDClient
source %SDMCACHE%\Packages\Reboot\Daily Reboot Files\Win7 Reboot Script\DailyReboot.vbs
Try that and see if it works. I wonder if its an issue trying to directly copy from that location.
Correction: I see that you are using the Additional Files section. Given that, you just need to update your copy command to what I put in my previous post
