Hi,

Software deployment through GPO. Problem.

I have 2 msi files that i need to install on all computers in the OU.
So have created a new GPO and in Computer configuration > Software settings > Software Installation
added the 2 msi files and Enforced the app's

Niow when i go to a client that i have added the machine to the domain and type
Rsop.msc the computer configuration shows a exclamation mark and does not install the App's

What could the problem be and how can i troubleshoot further

Regards
Sharath

Hi,
what kind of app is that? Some of them are not installable through Computer configuration.
Please check the event log on client machine, it will tell you what's happening.

These are the 2 events that are generated

Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.    The error was : The group policy framework should call the extension in the synchronous foreground policy refresh.


The Security Center service has been stopped.  It was prevented from running by a software group policy.

Huh, thanks, sound strange. I know what it's about, but I don't see the consequences.
Maybe I know - I'd say that foreground refresh means something like interactive refresh, which is of course not possible in Computer configuration.
Please just to verify - Create some Test OU, put some TEST user there and link a GPO here where you will have the .msi installed through the User configuration. Also choose Publish method this time. Then we'll see.

What would the differences be deploying software through Users or Computers?

In your particular case the difference will be in the fact, that the one through user should work:-)
Just joking - give it a try and you will see, it's not perfectly possible to say, if some installation will work or not. If it contains something rlated to users, you should use it via User config. I've seen it many times in my experience.
