    Hello,

    We use NOD and use the RAC/config files to update the 100 or so clients we have. We seem to be having a problem deleting some scheduled jobs though.

    The original config we used had a couple of scheduled jobs that are not needed anymore - so we removed these jobs from the list (not marked for deletion - we just removed them). We then added some more scheduled tasks, made some other changes to the config and saved it. Now when I push the new config to the clients - the new tasks aare added and the changes are updates - but the old tasks are not being deleted.

    Is there any way to get rid of the scheduled tasks from the clients even though within the schedule section of the config file the tasks are no longer present?

    Thanks
    A

    You must mark the desired tasks for deletion, otherwise these tasks won't be removed on target computers.

    Yeah - I realise that now! ;) But it is too late because I have already removed them from the schedule section of the config!

    Is there no way around this?

    If I created a totally new config and pushed that to the clients - would it fix my problem?

    You can click the Change ID button and assign the task one of the default IDs: 64, 65 or 66 as suggested in the dialog window. If you mark such a task for deletion and apply the configuration to workstations, these tasks will be removed completely.

    Alternatively, you can request a configuration from one of the workstations, mark the desired task(s) for deletion and roll it back on one or more machines, as necessary.
