Pre-download to cache -> clear cache -> re-download RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a TS deployment that is set to Pre-download content.

    That works very well, but if (for whatever reason) the cache is cleared on the client before the TS is launched, I cannot seem to make it re-pre-download. I have tried adding another Assignment Schedule and the execmgr.log on the client seems to 'understand' as it logs:

    "Will Pre-download source files because condition [@root\cimv2
    select * from win32_operatingsystem where osarchitecture like "%64%" and oslanguage=1033] evaluated to true."

    The problem though is that it never downloads the content again.

    Is there a way to make the client aware that it has lost the content and needs to re-pre-download it?

    Thanks in advance.

    /Michael

  • Hi Michael,

    When the client receives the in-place TS deployment policy, it starts to pre-cache the content after the deployment's available time. Based on my experience, we can't re-trigger the pre-download action of the original in-place TS. However, here is a workaround for your reference:

    1.Delete the original in-place TS deployment.
    2.Create a new in-place TS deployment to the collection that contains the clients.
    3.After the clients receives the deployment policy, it will start to pre-cache the content.

    For more information, please refer to:
    Configure pre-cache content for task sequences
    Configure SCCM Task sequence Pre-Cache Content – Part 1

    Thanks for your time.

    Best regards,
