software group policy behaviour
Posted on 2006-04-18
I want to incorporate software installation group policy into my environment. I am familiar how to create the policy and assign it to an OU/ what I am questioning is how to actually do the implementation. I will use XP SP2 asa an example. I want to implement the sevice pack to all the XP pro machines so I would push the policy out to all the XP machines BUT some of them have the service pack on already, so how would I go about doing this/? Will the policy recognize that the service pack is there already and not reinstall???
There are several other software policies that I want to implement but the software is already installed..
Again, I am familiar with the creation of the policy, just not the behaviour under certain circumstances……….
