I need to copy the C:\windows\system32\GroupPolicy folder from the model computer and deploy that lgpo to several other XP computers.  Then I need to run the gpupdate /force on those computers.  Please provide the steps and script for this.  **I am not a scripting guy so I will need as much detail as possible to complete this task.  Thank you!!**

If i was doing this, assuming all the comuters are networked, I'd have two scripts, one that copys the file, and a second one that tells the remote computer to run the frist one. Note that I don't know what file you're planing on copying, I've assumed that it's been copyed to \\server\public\group.grp and is destined for the users c:\windows\system32\ folder. Also, all the computes need to have administrative WMI turned on, you can do this by including the command "netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin enable" (without the quotes) in their login script, and turned off again with "netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin disable".

First script, save this in \\server\public\copy.vbs (for example):

Set fs = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.copyfile "\\server\public\group.grp" "c:\windows\system32\"

Second script, run this as a domain administrator:

Function RunRemote (strCommand,strcomputer)
      Const OverwriteExisting = True
      
      strNamespace = "root\cimv2"

      Set objWMIService = GetObject ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\" & strNamespace & ":Win32_Process")
      Error = objWMIService.Create (strCommand, null, null, intProcessID)
      RunRemote = error
End function

arrNames = array("computer1","computer2")

for i = 0 to ubound(arrNames)-1
        nme = arrNames(i)
        x = runRemote ("\\server\public\copy.vbs",nme)
next

msgbox "done"
