Making SoftPaq deployment useful
Is there some best practice method for SoftPaq deployment I'm missing here? I select a SoftPaq, I select a bunch of computers (and this in itself is poor, it should be a filter group, computers needing SoftPaq X) and then I choose a schedule... except I can't think of a non-rubbish schedule. Either I deploy now, and half the computers don't get the SoftPaq, or I deploy on a schedule and all the computers download it even when they've already got it installed. To top it off, once they have installed the SoftPaq they still appear on the deployment list for that SoftPaq, meaning it's impossible to see if new machines have appeared which need it.
The entire SoftPaq deployment mechanism seems useless for anything other than a small shop. Am I missing something?
