How do I properly configure my Hierarchy/Replication to properly replicate Software Resources that are assigned to Policies within Software Management? <P></P>This article applies to 7.0 and 7.0 SP1.
<P>Suppose that you have a setup with configured NS hierarchy. You have a parent NS and a child NS. Altiris Software Management Solution is installed on both NSs.</P> <OL> <LI>Create a software resource on parent NS. <LI>Open that software resource for editing. <LI>In the opened window go to Package tab and choose to edit a software package. <LI>In 'Add or Edit Package' web page dialog go to Package Server tab. <LI>In 'Assign package to' combo box choose 'Package servers individually', and then in Selected Package Server group box select package server instance of a parent NS. Please, see this screenshot for details:<BR><IMG border=0 alt="" src="https://api-broadcom-ca.wolkenservicedesk.com/es/attachments/get_attachment_content?uniqueFileId=625617304655"><BR>Save changes. <LI>Verify that a software resource appeared in the list of available packages in the package server of a parent NS. This can be done by opening Altiris Agent > Package Server tab, our software resource should be in the list of packages with package status 'Package is ready'. <LI>Replicate data to child-level Notification Server computers. <LI>After replication is complete (software resources are also replicated), verify that a software resource appeared in the list of available packages in the package server of a child NS. <LI>Create a new Managed Delivery policy, specify replicated software resource. The settings should be set to the options showed in the following screenshot:<BR><IMG border=0 alt="" src="https://api-broadcom-ca.wolkenservicedesk.com/es/attachments/get_attachment_content?uniqueFileId=625622938329"><BR>Under the Download tab, under the Download using options select 'Use the following settings to download and run'. Check the option 'Run from the server if bandwidth is above:' and select 'any connection speed'. <LI>After those steps a Managed Delivery policy can be successfully evaluated on the client. A software package will be downloaded and installed on the client.<BR></LI></OL><br/><p>
