Table 1. Client software distribution properties
Property ID Description
Status check expiration interval (days) sn_client_sf_dist.softwareInstallExpDays Controls how many days the system waits before ignoring the software installation status. The default time limit for installing software is 30 days before the system stops checking the installation status of a deployment.

Installation statuses are:

  • Not installed: User has not installed requested software prior to the expiration of the configured time limit.
  • Installed: Software was installed within the configured time limit.
  • Status check expired: Time limit has expired for the user to install the requested software. The system no longer checks the status of this deployment.
  • Revoked: Software was revoked by the administrator.
Reconcile software installation status interval (hours) sn_client_sf_dist.softwareInstallIntervalHours Determines when the scheduled job runs that determines the installation status. By default, the system checks the installation status every hour.
Set scheduled application Discovery interval (days). sn_client_sf_dist.discoveryExeDay Sets the repeat interval for the scheduled job that runs application Discovery. By default, Discovery runs at midnight on the day set with this value. The results of the Discovery are used by the other CSD properties to determine an application's installation status.
