Greetings, I am trying to deploy the Patchlink agent with Zen 6.5 on machines where the users do not have administrative rights.
I know you can elevate rights with Zenworks 6.5, but it doesn't seem to work. Thanks, Eric Hogan -- eric.hogan Scott Russell suggested this method earier.
Our local users have admin rights (for now...), but this should work for you.
His text: Not sure why this did not work for you, but if I understand you correctly, you are trying to push out the Patch Link agent via ZENworks for desktop app distribution. Almost none of our users have admin rights on w2k and xp computers... Used the version of Patch Link agent w/ the -s option in Parameters. 2) I stop the antivirus service under Pre-Dist Process term to speed up process.
1) You have to first copy the Update Agent folder to the local harddrive under Distribution Options | Application Files. 3) Run Options | Application path to local hd like c:\temp\Unpdate Agent\with Parameters set to -s. 5) Availability, to run if the file is not exist c:\program files\patchlink\update agent\That should work for ya...
********************* My comments: I created another app to follow later to delete the temp directory.
(Oddly, it will only delete the files but not the directory - still working on that).

One question - you say "copy the Update Agent folder to the local harddrive".where do I get this folder from and to where should I copy it? Thanks Ian I am trying to deploy the Patchlink agent with Zen 6.5 on machineswhere the users do not have administrative rights.I know you canelevate rights with Zenworks 6.5, but it doesn't seem to work. Hi Ian, there's a "Agent Install" directory on the CD.The directory have to be somewhere on the network where the user has read and file scan for the push.On the workstation self you'll need also write, create and modify.Hope this helps ---------------------------- MANNES Christophe eric.hogan I am using 126.96.36.199 and the big question is, if I use the setup.exe, how do I imbed the serial number and host in the application package.
