I am trying to understand the delivery task type in LDMS 9.6 but it seems that I can't understand the meaning of many key words.
for example for policy method here what we have in the official Landesk documentation
" The core server makes the packages available for download. When a managed device checks for available policies, the package will be returned. Depending on the policy type, devices may install the package automatically or make the package available to users for them to install when they want "
what policy means here !!!
what I understand right now that with push task the policyTaskHandler.exe will initiale the discovery process to deliver the task to the target devices. (I don't know what will be done in the client side).
Could any one help me to understand :
- what is the difference between push, policy and policy-supported push?
- why it is called policy type? and what a policy here mean?
- what does this sentence mean "when a managed device checks for available policies, the package will be returned" !!!!!!!!
- what is the agent compent that is in charge to handle software distribution (client side) ? and how the client proceed ?
Trust me I have tried to understand by my self but since I am a newbie with LanDesk it is hard for me to catch some terms and concepts.
Thanks in advance.
