  • 1. Advertisements fail to disappear quickly
    When we remove a user from an application advertisement, the advertisement in their Add New Programs column does not disappear until after 24 hours and a reboot. Why is this occuring? We have also tried having the user initiate the User Policy Retrieval and Evaluation Cycle Action , and the Machine Policy Retrieval Evaluation Cycle Action in the Systems Management properties in the Control Panel several times.
  • 2. Computer objects
    Hi! Is there a way to collect computer information that is set in Active Directory. Like "Managed by" and "Location". The thought is to create inventory lists by using sms 2003. //Andreas
  • 3. SMS Package Creation
    Where are you getting this error? If the package you are creating has source and if source is residing on some other machine (not SMS site server) then does SMS Site Server's LocalSystem account has permission to connect to that machine where the source is? -- This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights. "KirkMiller" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > We recently upgraded from 2.0. Or we actually just did a clean install. We have client push install running and are ready to distribute a test package to a few machines. However, each time we create a package in the same way we did on 2.0, we get: > > The source dir doesn't exist or SMS service can't access, WIn32 last error = 5 > > We are using the advance integrated security where SMS uses the local system account. Does anyone have any advice on what needs to be done to give this account access. Does that sound like the problem?
  • 4. msi or other packaging for distributing software?
    It is my understanding that you can take an msi package and set it to be distributed. For example Microsoft Office's msi package from CD. However can SMS take any application and package it into an MSI file? Or I guess the question is does SMS have it's own packaging capabilities without using a package utility? I do not know much about packaging so that is why I am asking. Do you need to know anything about Perl or Wyse in order to do this or will SMS create a package for you in a wizard type format? Thanks very much The SMS Curious to learn guy!
  • 5. Sending out msi package via SMS 2.0
    I'm trying to send out the above as I have read some articles that you can do the above. The program does show up in Advertised programs for the client but does not self install. The program I setup was msiexec /i sw_pub.msi in the command line properties. The program is Shockwave player. Appreciate help

Hello everyone,

Lately I had two packages I deployed which came back with this message " The 
program was able to be executed but the system was restarted unexpectedly 
before the program could be completed or before status could be recorded. No 
installation status MIF was found after the system restarted.

Possible cause: The program performs a restart of the client computer when 
it completes, but the 'After running' setting in the program's properties is 
not set to Program restarts computer, or the client machine was restarted 
while the program was running.
Solution: Verify the above. If the program does a restart when it completes, 
even if it only requires a restart in some cases, modify the program's 
properties and set 'After running' to 'Program restarts computer'".

When I build the package I postponed the restart, I checked the machine they 
had the package installed but I only get the email with Unexpected restart. 

Any ideas !!

You can use sms installer to invoke the patches with command line options 
that will suppress restarts. In my situation I cannot use the automatic 
updates so I package them with sms installer and deploy them in one shot. I 
suppress restarts and other notifications so that the target machine 
completes the install in the background and then restarts one time.
