We have a lot of machines coming on and off the network during the school day. Laptops in carts with their lids closed asleep until someone decides to use them.
So say I want to get Firefox updated district wide.
I set up a dynamic list in PDQ inventory to find all the machines running less that version 17.0
Since not all machines are on, awake, laptop lids open Etc I need to "catch" them in the schedule.
My thought was to run the update Firefox once an hour to try to catch them.
The problem is I think the machines only scan and update their installed software list once per day, unless i do it manually.
So once Firefox 17 is installed it still sits in the dynamic list showing version 16 or whatever installed until the machine runs its daily scan.
But if I'm installing once an hour based on this dynamic list it's gonna try to reinstall firefox 17 every hour.
Am I correct or am I missing something here?
