We are starting a pilot program to install Crashplan which is a cloud backup service. Because it is only backing up the users home directory the installer finds out who launched explorer.exe and uses that info to create the user's account and set the home directory as the directory to be backed up. If there is no user logged on, the install gets null values and fails. Because it is a pilot, we'll be pushing it out to 1's and 2's and can make sure they are logged on. Eventually, we'd like to push this out to larger groups and having it run only when the user is logged in will be much more important. I know I've seen that setting in SCCM but I can't find anything like that in LANDesk. I'd also much prefer it to be part of the package versus the task if possible so if someone were to create a new task it would be part of it.
What version of LDMS are you running?
In the Scheduled Task that you created go to Agent Settings and in the right window select Distribution and patch and the click Configure and in Policy Sync schedule select When User Logs in and in the Logged Off user options choose Run at next logon.
Just a quick addition to Joe's post.
The 'When User Logs On' doesn't apply to the task it is a setting that only applies if this is the Agent Setting applied to the client itself as it controls when the client checks for available tasks. If you plan to have user targeted distributions then it makes sense to have the agent setting you deploy with your agents to have this When User Logs In option checked so it will do that.
