The dssched.exe utility provides the benefit of remotely scheduling any Deployment Server job on any managed machine to run immediately.
By using this utility you can schedule and run jobs from scripts located on other machines, from separate management Consoles such as Dell OpenManage ITA, or through the Altiris Helpdesk Automation Rules and Microsoft Operations Manager.
What is the difference between AxSched.exe and DSSched.exe?
AxSched.exe is shipped with Deployment Solution and is officially supported. It allows you to schedule Deployment Server. AxSched.exe must be executed on the same machine which Deployment Solution is installed.
DSSched.exe works like AxSched.exe, however DSSched.exe can be executed remotely.
Note: It is important to note that it is not currently an officially suppported utility of Deployment Solution. The Altiris Administrative SDK (ASDK) now includes Deployment Solution functionality and examples. DSSched.exe was created before the ASDK supported Deployment Solution.
It looks like I should be able to schedule job and run it immediatelly using the /now switch with DSSched.exe
Does anyone know if there is a switch to run a job immediatelly using AxSched.exe?
