I've been trying to install a program on workstations via Software Distribution. From the reading of this forum I'm using the following method:
Policy Supported Push - To be sure that if any machines are offline they would get the files during the next policy update.
- No reboot
- hide all feedback from user
- Run the package immediately
Type and frequency of policy
Batch Distribution (again recommendations from this forum)
The reason for the batch distribution so I can add additional files. Once the files are on the workstations the batch file will copy the Additional files to it's appropriate location.
Everything is defaulted.
Schedule and fired it off to a workstation.
The files do get transferred to the workstations, the batch file executes and moves the additional files to it's proper location etc.
The only problem is the result of the schedule task, the message "Failed to install package" is always displayed.
The last couple lines of the log file is this:
Fri, 05 Dec 2008 11:46:40 Installation result 8DAC4002
Fri, 05 Dec 2008 11:46:40 processing of package is complete, result -1918091262 (0x8dac4002 - code 16386)
Everything is completed and working properly, why the error message. I'm using the result to determine if the application/batch file was executed properly.
