Default Failing to deploy apps


When trying to deploy an app to a 2k & XP PC in a test environment, we are
having failures on both PC's

I found the article that I was having an issue with and it seems odd I am
experincing it. Q307434. We have a NT4 Domain and I was testing deploying
the scan agent onto a 2k machine (And now a XP PC). Thats when I got the
error. However, all servers and clients ae SP5. And the article Q235205
was saying that the issue was resolved in SP3?

Ok, so then how do we know if which account (Server or Client is causing the
problem?). I looked at the local account (SMSCliSvcAcct&) and it's not
disabled.

I am waiting for the Server Admin to return Monday before I will be able to
look at the accounts on the server. I do know that the SMSClient_038 is not
disabled.

I pulled out the Smsapm32.logs but am not seeing anything there. I will
pull back all the logs and look thru them as well as possible post them for
you to review.


Thank you!

You will want to look at the ODPSYS32.log file on the client. Make sure it
receives the adverti*****t and passess it to SMSAPM32. You then will see
the command line run in this log and any return codes. SMS SUS also creates
an additional log when running a scan in the temp folder,
Securitypatch.log, which you can check.

I have since renamed the log files and added a .txt ext for the logs you are
referring to so that you can read them.
I have also gone thru the logs myself and am a bit perplexed

Correct me if I'm wrong, but here is what I am reading:

ODPSYS32.log is seeing the adverti*****ts.

Task 1-4 complete and the info is sent to the APM with no warning or erros
that I can see,

The APM sees the ads and is able to setup a schedule
I am seeing references to the packages being expired?!?! This isn't making
much sense.

Below are the logs. Rename them each without the .txt.

More things I tried:

I verified that the package is on the server's admin dist. folder
(\\epmcnt3\smspkge$\).

I was able to manually look inside that folder and execute the S_Scan.exe on
my 1st PC.

It appeared to have ran. A box came up and was installing files onto my PC.
I noticed the folder was \system32\VPCACHE\. I opened that folder and saw
the contents of the package there.

I then looked at my 2nd PC and saw that there was NO VPCACHE folder at all.

The other question is that we are using UNC paths to the executable. I know
that there are a few apps that refuse to use UNC paths. Is this one of
them? I may have missed that in the manual.

I will try to get the admin to change the package and use a Drive letter
instead.

Thanks!

Check the properties of your adverti*****ts for Security Updates and
Security Updates expedited, schedule tab and make sure it is set to reoccur
and that the Adverti*****t will expire checkbox is not selected. If its not
the logs seem to indicate that it is, I would try creating new ads and
deleting the old ones.

UNC works fine for SMS SUS.

Any other ideas then?
I'm not seeing any cause as of yet

If it is a user account issue, what account is it looking for?
We have it set to use admin. rights using Using the NT Client Software
Account.

On our test lab, that option is not checked.

I will test that setting but if not that, then what?

Um, ok, found the issue. The admin enabled using the NT Client account but
never did set the account to be used. I unchecked it and all is well. The
ad completed!!

Imagine that
