Software Deployment Question
How to get Managed Installs to deploy in order?
06/17/2016 1204 views
I'm trying to get two pieces of software to deploy in a specific order.
Software 1 - A hotfix that requires a reboot. Set to deploy without a user logged in. Order set to 9.
Software 2 - The actual software I'm trying to install. Set to deploy any time. Order set to 10.
So, if you can read this graphic, it looks like this:
When I view the machine in inventory, it shows both of them as Waiting Managed Installs. Since I have the order set as "9" and "10", I would expect the "9" would have to deploy before it would do "10", and if "9" hasn't installed, then it would not move on to "10" because... well... That's the order. Except... It's not doing this.
"10" will install regardless if "9" has installed. Why is this? I need "9" to install first because it's a prereq. I thought about using a script instead of an MI, but I love how the MIs work... They are just easier to deal with long term.
Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong that's really simple? Thanks for any ideas...
