    Deployment Task issues VSEnterprise

    soccer4net
      I'm having an issue with the deployment task. It may be behavior by design but I need to come up with a better compromise if possible.
      Default Deployment task is set to:
      Schedule: Run Immediately
      Settings: VS7.1 Install

      The problem is with the "RUn at every policy enforcement interval"(PEI please). What I want is any client who has the agent to automatically install VSE. If I uncheck the Run at every PEI, nothing gets installed. If check it, every 10mins clients are dling files and checking if they need to install the package. This creates a lot of traffic and can take a site down in some cases.

      Here is the log of client with deployment running at PEI disabled:

      And on and on. Like I said this takes up to much bandwidth. I want them to install VSE if they don't have it and then it should stop right there. I suppose I could set enable deployment at every PEI and then change PEI to every 2hrs to alleviate the problem, but that could lead to other issues...

      Anyone notice this behaviour??
