We're using LANDesk 8.8 SP3 to distribute software to our Windows clients.
We use policy-based software distribution where a LDAP query is used as a target for the scheduled task.
As far as we understand, the policy is triggered based on the query results, the policy is made available on the core server for the clients and the agent will detect the policy and schedule the task locally.
We notice however, that the time it takes to distribute the software this way is not happening consequently. Sometimes, the distribution is triggered 10 minutes after logon, sometimes up to an hour before the first task is rolled out.
Can anyone explain how this system of policy-based software distribution works and how/if it can be manipulated manually from the client/agent?
Thanks in advance.
