Installing application through GP, only partially working
Posted on 2009-02-23
I am going nuts with GP. It seems to be that group policy decides every now and then to just NOT WORK. It has been working fine previously but now I have the problem of applications not installing correctly.
I create a GP and link it to either computer or user accounts. I have also tried "forcing" it. I can see through "gpresult /v" on the client that the policy indeed is noticed by the computer, and that it has been applied. But the only sign of the installed application on the computer is that I can choose to "uninstall" it from the install/remove software in the control panel. But the application has yet never been actually installed. There is no programfolder, files or anything to be found on the computer.
I have tried different software deployment methods like "assigned / published". Logged out, and restarted the computer 30 times...
I have also tried this with several different programs, just to make sure it isnt just the msi-packet. The outcome is always the same. I cannot find anything in the client logs. However I found the following errormessage in the DC log: Software installation was unable to read the MSI file \\server\share\software\install.msi. The following error was encountered: SQL query syntax invalid or unsupported.
In a another "warning" log: Software installation encountered an unexpted error while reading from the MSI file \\server\share\software\install.msi. The error was not serious enough to justify halting the operation. The following error was encountered: The operation completed successfully.
Any ideas on what the reason is behind this?
