Summary

This document provides information regarding the difference between two scheduled tasks: 1. Merge ManageSoft policies and 2. Reconcile ManageSoft directory tables with AD

Synopsis

There are two scheduled tasks in FNMP 9.2 related to policy merging.

1. Merge ManageSoft policies
Program\Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Common\ndcrproc.exe
Tasks = -e "C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -l "E:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -o CREATE_NO_WINDOW=True -- -R -a

2. Reconcile ManageSoft directory tables with AD
Program\Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Common\ndcrproc.exe
Tasks = -e "C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -o CREATE_NO_WINDOW=True -- -ran

Discussion

The differences between the above two policies are as follows:

1. Merge ManageSoft policies
Program\Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Common\ndcrproc.exe
Tasks = -e "C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -l "E:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -o CREATE_NO_WINDOW=True -- -R -a

This task generates merged policy across all Active Directory domains that are configured for policy merging. This configuration is done on the inventory server, using the item Setup for multiple domains from the context menu available on the root node in the console tree. The resultant data is merged into the inventory database for checking installation status.


2. Reconcile ManageSoft directory tables with AD
Program\Script: C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Common\ndcrproc.exe
Tasks = -e "C:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Reporter\polmerge.exe" -o CREATE_NO_WINDOW=True -- -ran

This task reconciles your Active Directory without generating merged policies, then modifies your inventory database to reflect any renamed, moved, or deleted computers, users, or organizational units.
