Introduction

The following is a description of how to change status on a package.

 


 

Step

Action

1

Select the package in the navigation pane. On the right in the content view, a list of units to which the package is added will be shown.
 

2

Right click a unit and select the status you wish to apply to the package.

  • Waiting
  • Installed
  • Failed
  • Schedule uninstallation


     

The menu item View Installation Log gives the option to view the package installation log if the package has been executed. 
The log file will be uploaded to the database if the package has the status Installed, Failed or Cancelled.

If a package consist of more than one script e.g. if a Post Install Script is present it is only the latter that will be viewable from the Console.
To view previous scripts they can be found on the local computer in <Program Files>\CapaInstaller\Client\Logs.

 

Note!
If you change the status of a package to waiting, installation of the package on the targeted unit will be attempted again.
 
If you change the status of a package to installed, Configuration Management will consider the package as if it has been installed on the target unit.
 
If you change the status of a package to failed, Configuration Management will consider the package as the installation on the target unit failed.
 
Schedule uninstallation will remove the software from the unit.

 

 

Tip!
If the status is manually changed to either failed or installed, naturally there will not be an installation log for the package.
