I've inherited a PDQ server (Deploy and Inventory) and I've been trying to absorb as much information on this software as I can. I want it to be our go-to for installing forward, but there is a lot I need to learn first.
To clarify our situation, we about 700 employees some of which are working from home and connecting via SonicWall NetExtender to our MPLS connected network in order to access files (stored offi-site). We're spread across 40 locations but everyone is connected via MPLS.
PDQ has been setup for a while but left dormant for months. Looking at this for the first time, we have 825 recognized computers. I created a Dynamic Collection to show only computers that are not using VPN (based on IP). This works fine and in the resulting list of 693 non-remote workstations, a bunch of them have different errors. The description for them hasn't help me figure out what is wrong. Here are a few:
"The specified network name is no longer available" x1
"The network path was not found" x13
"Target requires reboot to complete .Net installation" x1
"Service manager logon failure" x1
"ReturnCode cannot be null" x1
"NTLM: Target computer name mismatch" x2
"Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again." x4
"Kerberos: The target account name is incorrect" x68
"Failed to write file on target" x29
"Failed to connect to the service manager" x1
"Could not Wake on LAN" x3
Where do I begin?
