Software Installation GPO Listing

Posted on 2007-10-09
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
If you use the GPO 'software installation ' process to push out a software install and only half of the clients receive the install successfully via Active Directory and the rest you had to do manually, how do you list out via AD which computers have received the software install?  That is, can you go into the OU that was assigned the GPO and list out the computers that have received the Microsoft managed software installation?

Thanks, Dan

    In a simple answer, no.  You might be able to use the registry or ADSiedit OR you can hit against the event logs on the remote workstations to see any warnings or errors.
