Hi Everyone !
I am using LDMS 2016 with latest CSA, in my environment all the servers / desktops communicating with LANDesk core server through the CSA (Management Gateway)
Can I use any option from the below mentioned snapshot in order to update agents on all the servers / desktops checking in through the CSA (it's not about change agent settings that as we already know can do using policy based change setting task)
I think in my case I can not use any of the options available in Agent Configuration. (due to CSA, want to update agents through the CSA)? according to you, is it possible, most probably it's not,
if not is there any workaround to get this work?
I assume the only option I am left with when it comes to updating agents through the CSA is policy based distribution task as shown in below mentioned snapshot.
It works fine, I have tested it in lab environment on multiple servers / desktops, however don't you think that it just reinstall a fresh updated self contained agent EXE, of course it works end of the day that's what we want , however we can not say specifically that it's updating it, It is just a complete plain reinstall of the agent through policy based distribution task (has to be policy as all are checking through CSA), do you guys see any drawbacks while utilizing this method for updating agents? or it's just fine, should not require a second thought, of course we can use EXE of advance agent as well with this policy based distribution task. (if it is just doing simple reinstall of the agent then we can also utilize sysinternals "PsExec" to remotely execute the agent EXE), I mean in this case what difference does it make if I prefer the later?
Apart from policy based distribution task method to update agents, is there any other option / choice that you think would be better to utilize?
Kindly guide me on this, your experience / insights / working knowledge would really help.
Thank you for your attention on this !
