Can the Windows Software Distribution Wizard in BigFix deploy a .bat file?
Yes it can. You will just need need to set your command line to cmd.exe /C “yourbatfile.bat”
Thanks, I got it working sort of, I see the file on the target server but I was logged on to the server when the action was ran and I was hoping to see the file run on the server while logged on. Is that possible?
Depending on how you set up your task, the output was most likely hidden.
The BigFix client runs as SYSTEM so you will not see anything unless you use the Run As CurrentUser option but that is not available in the wizard you specified. That wizard is really old and not being developed any more. The most recent one that has that option lives in the Software Distribution site and it is a dashboard called Manage Software Distribution. You could also hand edit the content created by the Windows Software Distribution Wizard. Check this out.
