Currently Being ModeratedAug 19, 2008 9:08 AM (in response to Ken_Edgar)I suggest making the task and saving it for all systems. If you are using ARD 3 you can click on the task history and see which ones have failed. Then make a new task to cover those left out. I don't know of any way to automate the failed systems.2.16 GHz Intell iMac 20" + 4 other Macs, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 10.5.4 only lives after a complete HD wipe

Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2008 11:29 AM (in response to Ken_Edgar)I've occasionally made it at a point to have utterly complete computer lists. I'd then duplicate lists to a consolidated list named "needs X" and remove machines as they succeed, but I really have to watch my step for mistakes. We were also using a non-ard, home-grown, "auto update on boot" shell script, but it was never updated for 10.5.
This is probably the least-cool thing I've posted in a technical forum but right now I both recommend, and am utterly reliant upon, my current "deployed software version control system," the humble pen and paper checklist.Mac: Pretty much one of everything Apple sells, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
