    Default Delivery Method

    Apprentice

      Is there a place where the default delivery method can be set?  Currently it will come up with "policy" and "Required installation".  But would like to change that to a "policy-supported push" with a custom delivery method.  Using 8.8 SP3.

          Policy or Policy-Supported-Push is the same, LANDesk use only the policy part.

          Usually I create a default policy DM using a name that start with '@' or '_'. In this way the DM is selected by default 'cause LD GUI use alphabetical order.

            Hi Jary

             

            The explanation you gave cannot be proven on our system LD8.8 SP4.

             

            In "Delivery type" we have:

             

            • Multicast (cache only)
            • Policy [default]
            • Policy-supported push
            • Push

             

            In "Delivery method" we have:

             

            • Axxx (entries beginning with A)
            • ...
            • Required installation [default]
            • User-controlled installation

             

            So even if entries are first in alphabetical order, we still get "Policy/Required installation" when scheduling a task.

             

            Can this really be customized or must a feature request be created?

              If you boot a pc from the network (without scheduling a template for it) LANDesk WinPE will first ask you for credentials and then will show a dialog to select a template and the delivery method. This dialog shows delivery methods in alphabetical order, if I remember well also in 8.8 version.

                Sorry, mea culpa, I didn't notice that this post was located in provisioning...

                 

                I was talking about scheduling manually a task and then define the delivery method.

                 

                Never mind!
