Deploying appliaction via group policy

Hi,

I have configured a GPO to deploy the adobe 9 software ( used the adobe instructions) . I know have a few questions:
1. Once it installs the software, will it try to install it on each reboot?
2. Once all the computer have adobe 9, can I just delete the GPO, or will it then remove the application from the computers?
3. After creating the GPO, on login it takes a long time at the "applying computer settings" , I can have users waiting 10 minutes for login

Please help

1. It will only install it once on each machine with two exceptions. The install has to be successful and you do not move the computer into another OU and then back. This will reapply all the policies.

2. You can delete the GPO there is an option to either remove or allow to continue using. Its up to you.

3. Does it do this every time? It should only really affect the users as the software is being installed. Are you applying any other policies at this time?

This is the dialog box when you remove the software installation. In response to your question number 2.

1. I dont know if software installation does logging for you. Checking the machines for Adobe 9 would tell you if it worked. The event viewers would tell you if it failed. I dont know of any way to do this effectively on many machines. Maybe someone else on here does.

2. See my post above

3. I would try disabling the user portion of this GPO, but more than likely I think this is being caused by some of your other GPO's. You said this GPO doesnt have any security settings listed in it only the software install.

In the gpmc.msc right click on the CPO and youll see the following menus.

I dont think it will reinstall it. But I am not 100% sure. That is fairly easy to test once you get the GPO up and running. You can just uninstall and then reboot. My gut feeling on this is that it wont reinstall.

Not through group policy. Im sure there is some other software out there that can do that but Im not familiar with it. You could look into MS steady state, ive never used it but it may do what you want.
