what version of bladelogic is this? also, there are a number of cab files that are downloaded from shavlik, maybe one of the others is still being attempted?
I am running 7.6. I'm unclear if others need to be stopped, my guess is yes. It seemed to use
the cached analysis xml, but uses another for packaging. I'll reply if I get a firm answer.
Just to throw my own two cents in (without adding any *real* content to the thread), we have been seeing this issue more frequently in the last month or so as well: http://communities.bmc.com/communities/thread/40232?tstart=0
Would be interested in hearing other thoughts on the issue, from anyone who may be "in the know".
I haven't recevied an answer from support, however it seems as if I need to disable the download of the pd5.cab as well. This seem to be involved with building that patch package. Regardless we shutdown all Shavlik XML update for the time being until BMC can make their partner offer a higher SLA or some other alternative. Uptime for the shavlick site for the last 30 days is 92% which is in no way an acceptable SLA. The bulk of the bad behavior is after a critical patch is released by MS.
