Active Directory, Push Files To Hard Drive

I am a programmer that has inherited the task of network admin, and I am not qualified!

We have an active directory domain, and I need some way to push files from a network store to a specific location on each pc's hard drive.

Most likely when the user logs in, but doing it on request would be even more ideal!

There are a few ways to do this, depending on what your goals are.

You could use a logon script to have the users pull down the files from the network when they log on.  Do you have any existing logon scripts?  Do users have permission to the network store and the desired location on C:?

Alternatively you could run a script to copy the files out to the c$ shares on multiple remote machines at the same time.  What exactly do you mean by "on request" -- yours or the users'?

Log on script is best idea!
