Software deployment schedule recurring

Hi,

I have HP CAS

Can some one explain me please some thing about software deployment.

What schedule recurring really do when creating software deployment job?

Only what I can find in manual CA_standard.pdf is that "you can recurring schedule only to group"

Does software reinstalled again on recurring schedule interval? Or just verify if software is installed?

 

I ask because if I do software deployment Job with recurring schedule interval for MSI package, I see in windows application log

 

Event1.

Beginning a Windows Installer transaction: C:\PROGRA~2\HEWLET~1\HPCA\Agent\Lib\SYSTEM\RADIA\SOFTWARE\ZSERVICE\7-ZIP\7Z920-X64.MSI. Client Process Id: 1004.

 

Then event2

Product: 7-Zip 9.20 (x64 edition) -- Configuration completed successfully.

 

this look like software is reinstalled!?!?!?

 

 

Thanks in advance

 

Hrvoje

Re: Software deployment schedule recurring

Hi,

 

Any software connect , whether you notify that or set a recurring schedule, will only verify whether the installed software is in the desired state or not. The desired state is decided by the administrator . The sofwtare will NOT be installed again unless it is found in a broken state or found uninstalled even though the administrator wanted it to be on the client's machine.

 

The MSI log may not give you a clear picture of what is happening. You can check the actual connect log on the target device,

 

Thanks,

Praveen

Hi,
If I understood your question right, it will not re-install the software.
