Deploying software to XP pro from 2K server
Posted on 2003-03-27
This is my first post here. This forum is great!!!! I just signed up for 6 months. Ok heres the scenario:
2 PCs in the same OU. Both logged in with Administrator Privileges and both using the same user name. 1 PC is 2000 pro, 1 PC is XP Pro. Both are freshly installed and fully updated. All permissions are fine with everything enabled and good to go.
I deploy Norton AV 2002 using a GPO in the OU for these 2 PCs with an MSI file. It is "Assigned" to the computers in the OU. User config is disabled and computer config enabled.
2000pro takes it with no question. XP wont take it. Nothing happens, it's like I didn't even assign it.
So my question is, is this even possible? Can you deploy software to XP from 2000 server? I scoured the net and Microsoft but could not find anything specific to this problem so I assume that you can. But for the life of me I can't figure out what would cause this.
2 PCs, everything identical except 1 is XP and 1 is 2Kpro. Stumped.
