Experimenting a little with OS deployment, I've tried to make sdclient.exe return messages to the console during an OS deployment job.
I've tried several ways of launching sdclient, all variants of:
BEGINWINPE=TRUEREMPING18=WINPE, TIMEOUT=1800REMEXEC19=x:\ldclient\sdclient.exe /msg=<qt/>TestMessage<qt/>
REMEXEC20=notepad ; just to stop the script
However, the message does not appear in my console when I push the job. Logfile reports:
"000C29FA3214","ERR_Fail",1168,0:00:01,21.03.2009 01:00:05,21.03.2009 01:00:06,"x:\ldclient\sdclient.exe /msg=<qt/>TestMessage<qt/>"
Pushing batch files in Software Distribution with sdclient.exe /msg works as expected.
Anyone got this working or got any bright ideas?
After a night's sleep it hit me that OSD fires the legacy job control window and probably doesn't work anything like the "new" LANDesk 8 software distribution jobs... This might not work at all, but I'm open for suggestions
