I have a Windows 2000 domain. I created a Group Policy called deploy to assign Office 2000 to 20 new workstations. I created the software distribution point using the setup.exe /a from the command line. It looks as if the sdp was succucessful because I see about 12 files including the *.msi file. I created a test ou for testing purposes. In that ou I added myself (administrator permissions) and my w2k pro workstation. I added the deploy gpo to the test ou. It looks as if everything should work, but when I log on to my client, I get nothing.
I then decided to create a gpo to remove search, run, and help from the start menu, for testing purposes. This didnt work on my client either. If I log into the server with this account, it removed my 3 items from the start menu. I must be overlooking something very simple, but I cant find it yet.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
