Discrepancies between Smart Labels, Device Inventory and Managed Install targets
I would like a little clarification on the behavior I am seeing when dealing with Smart Labels, Managed Installs and Devices. I am running some tests to try to pinpoint some issues and I am trying to figure out if this is the expected behavior.
I will give some of the details of my current testing environment below:
Name = DL - TEST - Java - 8u31
Software Titles does not contain Java 8 Update 31 AND
System Name = TestMachineName
Labels = DL - TEST - Java - 8u31
After running an inventory on the Test machine, the device shows up under the Label Management computer dropdown and the Managed Install properly shows up under the Managed Installs dropdown. However, if I go to the Manahed Install, the Managed Install Tasks section still shows up empty. If I then go to that devices inventory and go under Labels, the DL - TEST - Java - 8u31 Label is missing.
The device meets all Label requirements, shows up under the Label in Label Management, and has had an inventory ran but is still not properly having the Manage Install deployed or having the Label properly registered. I am trying to figure out why I am seeing this behavior, and I believe I am seeing the reverse as well. Where devices are not being properly removed from Labels after an inventory even though they no longer meet the requirements of that label. They might not be listed under the label in Label Management, but are still registering as part of the label under it's inventory and in Managed Installs. In some of these scenarios I am seeing Managed Installs installed multiple times because of the delay for the Labels to properly be registered.
What am I missing here?
EDIT: I have given it some time to settle and ran an inventory a few more times on this machine, but it is still not registering under the Managed Install. The Label now shows under the device's inventory, but not under the Managed Install.
