I am looking for some "best practice" or high level advice. I am very new to LT and see several potential solutions to this problem.
I need to run software upgrades on several machines, but only after machine 1 has successfully run the upgrade. I am using "set variable" constant and "variable check" but its not working. My assumption was that since the set variable constant function runs on the server it would be available to the other machines running the same script at the same time. That does not appear to be the case. Is there a way to do this with variables?
Instead of variables, I could poll a "flag.txt" file as suggested here: viewtopic.php?f=100&t=17388&p=26759&hilit=variable+check#/
-not very elegant, but it would work.
Or maybe since the software needs to have same version across the location, I should create an EDF at the location level and use EDF SET / EDF GET.
Anyone care to weigh in or suggest better ideas?
Thanks in advance,
