Force Check in Script VS Invidiual Force Updates
I've been working with the K1000 for over a year now and am on version 5.4.76847. Most of my machines are on agent
5.4.5315. From my understanding, when a software distribution is setup, it distributes and installs software based on check-ins. If the distrubtion is set to kick off at then next available time, when a machine checks in, software should install. So, by theory then, a force check in script that hits multiple machines should cause them to start the software install, but in my experience it very rarely does.
What does work though is individually going to every machine's inventory in KACE and doing a force update, that will almost immediately cause the software distrubition to kick off and do it's install. And i can literally go through a list of 140 machines and do force updates all in a row and all the installs will work.
So why does a force check-in script not do the same thing? It's a bit of a pain to manually click through every machine in my inventory
Thanks for any insight
