I am currently in the process of testing software distribution via Group Policy using DFS shares. We have domain controllers across the country over a WAN link all under one domain. My plan is to create a DFS root at our main office and add these domain controllers as targets to this root so that the software package replicates to these regional sites via their local domain controller. My question is, is there a separate setting in Group Policy to ensure that the users will get this MSI package from their local domain controllers, or is Group Policy intuitive enough that it will install the software on the client from the DC it got it's policy from. I hope my question is clear. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
