  • 1. Distribution Point update over WAN connection
    As far as I understood the update process of the distribution points in a single site, only simple file copy is used to refresh the data. Is there a possibility to manage the traffic between the site server and the distribution point, i.e shape it or exchange the file copy by http-downloads (without setting up a secondary site of course...)?
  • 2. Very Strange Problems with Patch Q840374 in SMS 2.0 with SUS
    Hi, I've a SMS 2.0 SP5 with all the SUS updates installed. Everything works fine usuarlly with patch distribution. However I've noticed a weired problem: -the sync xml file is updated correctly in my sync host. -it is well distributed to my clients (it apperas in C:\WINDOWS\system32\VPCache\... directory) However when I choose in my SMS adm. console to distribute patches, this patch is not available. Looking through the securitypatch.log of my test workstation, I see that this patch is not listed in the log!! even if the local xml file conatins the patch!!! So, what the hell is going on? Thanks and greetings from Barcelona!!!
  • 3. Uninstalling spyware

  • 4. msi wrapper for Windows Updates
    I am using msi wrappers to execute Windows Updates. They work fine as long as the custom action to execute the update is run Synchronous, Ignore exit code. Without the "Ignore exit code" the update is executed successfully but the msi execution fails. The failure happens rights at the end of the custom action, just at the point that the update would be prompting the user to restart. Any ideas why Windows Installer cannot handle the restart return code from the update? Up to about 6 months ago the patches used to just force a restart and Windows Installer finished normally, Thanks, Anthony
  • 5. ISA Firewall Client Installation (Silent) Fails Without Admin Rights
    This is a multi-part message in MIME format. There appears to be a problem installing the ISA Server 2000 Firewall Client MSI (MS_FWC.MSI) via an SMS Package even though the Package Environment is specified as using Administrative Rights. Any ideas on a workaround? I want to do a silent install of the firewall client via an SMS push with no user interaction. -- Joe Hoggood em: XXXX@XXXXX.COM <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1400" name=GENERATOR> <STYLE></STYLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=#ffffff> <DIV><FONT size=2>There appears to be a problem installing the ISA Server 2000 Firewall Client MSI (MS_FWC.MSI) via an SMS Package even though the Package Environment is specified as using Administrative Rights.

Hi,

Is there a way to generate a message during a package distribution to inform 
the user of the installation and optionally, to be able to postpone for a 
certain amount of time?

Thanks!

The advertised Programs Client Agent gives a popup and count down when 
something is going to install.  As for a postpone, I don't think you can 
easily.  You could send down an HTA file as a notification.  HTA is just a 
HTML Application file, I use them for some notifcations that I want the user 
to know about.   In this file you could write vbscript to stop the transfer 
agent for say x hours.  The HTA file would be sent down before the other 
application runs.
