as our landesk-deployment comes to its final phase i'm currently trying to build a package with a huge amount of sourcefiles (oracle client).
Because of this i tried to use a method which uses "run from source" instead of "download from source" (which works fine!). We're using a preferred server on each site, which can be accessed via UNC only. (e.g. \\preferred_package_server\package_share\package_folder\*)
The batchfile (in package_folder) normally looks (when downloading from source) like this:
cscript some_vbscript.vbs installer.exe /some_switches
When using "download from source" everything works fine. The package_folder is downloaded via peer or preferred server.
When using "run from source" the batch (started from the core) ends up in errors because the batch looks locally for files ...
It tried another batch, which looks like this:
This batch runs without errors but the installation is done completely from our core. Because of bandwidth problems this is not a solution. The severname-substitution (coreservername replaced by preferredservername) doesn't work here?
What I need is something like this in my batchfiles:
Is that possible or do i have to parse the clients preferredserver.dat to get a pps-variable?
Thanks for your help!
