    install applications/bundles on the devices

    Hi,

    we use zenworks since a few weeks and i have a problem with the software distribution.

    I created some bundles and they are assigned to devices. Now i have 2 questions:

    1. if i assign bundles to devices - is it possible to install these bundles with non admin accounts? For example User X need the Software bundle Z and i assign the bundle Z to the users device. Is it possible that the software installation runs with the "normal" user account?

    2. I have assigned some bundles to a device and the status of the bundles is "available". How can i start the installation of the software? I tried the option "install bundle" in the zcm configuartion but nothing happens. In the bundle options i set the setting "install bundle if user logon to zcm". Nothing happens if i logon in the zcm agent.

    It would be nice if someone can help me.
    Greetings

    Re: install applications/bundles on the devices

    This forum is actually for the ZENworks Admin Studio product, despite
    the less than clear name.

    The best place for these questions would be.........
    novell.support.zenworks.configuration-management.11.bundles.windows

    However, let me answer quickly and then post follow up questions in the
    forum above. You may want to post each question separately to make sure
    each is answered.

    #1 - Simply Put Yes.
    In General MSI actions will just install w/o doing anything.
    For EXE installs, you will want to run the action either as Dynamic
    Administrator or System.

    #2 - You will want to set a deployment schedule. On Refresh is a
    commonly used schedule sine a refresh will happen at logon.
