deployment during ZPM subscription

Hi,
I've setup an automatic to run tonight at 8pm, to deploy agents to around
200 workstations.
At my surprise, at 8h15, the process haven't started yet, and was still in
the pending state...
humm
I've check, couples things, and decided to force the schedule, dans to
launch the task now...
it changed to pending, without deploying any agents....
i've check in the zpm\ncdist folder, and realised that the server was still
downloading .plp files (scheduled of the subscription service was set to
6h30pm
the server can't multithread this ?

Also, how to stop ZPM !?!

Marc

Patchlink has not allowed the two processes to run at the same time. It is
by design.

Why would you want to do this?

Cause it blocks my deployment !! ZPM runs for so long, and sucks all the CPU
of the server

Hum...Once the patches are downloaded, then it should be fine. On a daily
bases this would only take a couple of minutes.

So, you are saying that the download of patches never finishes?

Re: deployment during ZPM subscription

Shaun in the ZPM forum
