If a SD Package is sent to some agents and deliver time is different than activation time, the SD package is stored on the Scalability Server. At activation time, If agent download method is Internal NOS-Less, the package is downloaded on the target machine. How to download the package on target machine at deliver time and not at activation time ?
An Agent has Software Delivery Download Method set to "Internal - NOS-less"
A SD Package is sent to it with an activation time different than deliver time.
The job container is in state "Execution Order Staged"
On Scalability Server, at deliver time, the package is stored under %SDROOT%\ASM\LIBRARY\activate :
On Agent machine the package is not present under %SDROOT%\TMP\activate and under %SDROOT%\TMP\activate\FLTSTAGE
Install Data Transport Agent plugin on the target machine
And set "DTS - NOS-less" Download method for SD Agent :
At delivery time, the package is sent using DTS to the target machine and stored under %SDROOT%\TMP\activate\FLTSTAGE
At Activation time, the SD package is already present on the Agent machine and execution of procedure could start immediately.
