7.1: Managed Software Delivery and multiple tasks

Created: 26 Apr 2011 • Updated: 17 Sep 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is it possible to have multiple tasks listed under the Application Tasks section of the Altiris agent for a policy?  In the old version I was able to associate multiple tasks with a SWD package and it would show up this way in the agent. Below is an example from our 6.x agent of what I'm asking.

This is now configured back on the SMP server.  You could make seperate policies to execute Hardware, Software etc., but it will not show like it did back in 6.x.  You can also pick different data classes and items to get more granular.  Remember Inventory uses a combination of managed software delivery, and task.

Was mainly using the inventory package as an example.   We mainly use tasks to allow the user to be able to easily uninstall/repair an application without having to have local administrator rights.  I'm fine with giving our help desk staff a couple of quick delivery tasks to run for these few instances, but I can see in the majority of cases when the end-user is not on the network, and cannot connect to the network, where it's going to be a pain.
