I just start using LanDesk at work and I would like to understand the process. I have made some effort but I still have some problems with some concept.
1 - difference between standard task and policy. I think that a policy is a special task that provides the possibility to define a delivery method and must be setted either to "policy" or "policy supported push ". If you have more details about the difference it will be great
2 - the "policytaskhandler.exe" will detect a new task, it will send an UDP discovery parquet to be sure that the software will be delivery to the right device. then it will create an xml file that contains the task description. So how will notify the target device that there is a new software to detect and does it log this information ?
3 - the sdclient will start by downloading the task xml file (using http protocol). When the download of distribution package will start??
4 - where can I find log files (in the server side and client side)
5 - the tcp port 9594 is used for what?
I will appreciate if you can help me to understand the main steps. I have been reading a lot of documentation and I have used wireshark but I still need help
Thanks in advance and sorry for the long comment :-)
