Thinstaller repository and installation mechanisme

Dear all,

We have the following question regarding the download behaviour of thininstaller.

What happens if thininstall should downlaod 3 packages and is interrupted (VPN, roaming, sleep) for example during the second download. What happens at reconnect? Will thininstall continue downloading from where it stopped or will it restart from package 1 or package 2 or will it even restart? Does thininstaller have a connection timeout?

 

We have a questionmark regarding implementation with SCCM for for systems that have already been deployed...if we would use a sccm package with the deployment options to "Downlaod content from distribution point and run locally" it would download the hole content repository GB for all models to the client and execute thininstaller after.

 

If we would choose "Run from Distribution Point" then we should exactly know what happens in case of connection lost.

 

Does anyone have experience ?

 

Thx and regards

Re: Thinstaller repository and installation mechanisme

what results have you seen during your testing?  have you tried putting a system to sleep or forcefully interrupting the downloads as you described?

Re: Thinstaller repository and installation mechanisme

this is a snippet of my smsts.log when my thininstaller task sequence executes followed by pulling the network cable.  as you can see, the applicable packages are found but failed to download.:

further down in the log, you'll see 80072ee7 errors, which means the system cannot lookup the name in dns (network cable pulled)

in the update_log, you'll also see the files can't be found on the repo:
