  • So it seems to be reading the OU without errors. By chance are any of these machines disabled?

  • In options you can set the concurrent target per deployment. Set that to 5 and have a final step of your deployment being a reboot. Once the reboot is complete, the task is marked complete and the next 5 can start.

  • If you select the container and select Sync Now, what does the last sync status say at the bottom?

  • Create a dynamic collect using Computer as your filter, IP address as your column and starts with as your comparison. So if your subnet is 192.168.100.x, 192.168.100 would be your value.

  • A heartbeat is triggered when a computer is offline, then comes online. I believe the timeout is 5 minutes of being offline. A simple reboot does not trigger a heartbeat. Colby, please correct me if I'm wrong.

  • If it's part of the Creative Cloud suite, Adobe provides a builder for you that will create the .MSI and associated files. After that, it's a simple setup in PDQ. Mine looks like this:

    msiexec.exe /i "CC.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log

  • As I remember it being explained, heartbeat works when a machine is offline for about 5 minutes, then comes back online. Test this by turning off one of the target computers, waiting the appropriate time, then turning it back on.

    I stumbled on this one at first as well.

  • Exactly the same way. Build your deployment packages and set triggers/schedules for computers that don't have the software installed and that belong to a specific AD group.

  • Please try adding your image again.

  • Licensing is per user. If you have one person managing both domains, then you pay for one license.


  • Same. However I use the ALTERNATE package which seems to have not been updated but the variable has causing all my clients to re-install 201-b09 every day this past weekend.

  • The only way I know how to do it is to import the raw data into Excel and create a pivot table there.

  • OK, I misunderstood. The built in report can group the computers and display the applications by row, not column.

  • PDQi has a built in report named Applications that does exactly this.

  • I have discovered the files that store these setting but there is a unique problem. If I copy the files to the install computer before the user first uses ShareX, the files are useless. If I copy them over after the first use, they I can overwrite the existing files and they will work. Odd behavior.

  • Can you try running it from the users computer using the login credentials you have setup for PDQ?

  • Computer --> SP / Release --> Equals --> 1803

  • Customizing ShareX
  • Are you using the agent?

  • You can install it to a server or a regular computer, it makes no difference so long as the computer you install it on has access to the other computers you want to install software to (permissions, network, etc.).
