Hello,
As you may know, on the http://www.codeplex.com you can find Microsoft open source tools and scripts that help you in your IT infrastructure.
A tool for pushing Microsoft FCS to the clients was written and it was considered by me a nice tool, but now it doesn't working anymore.

As nothing was changed, i don't know what to do.
I tried using this tool from another computer but still nothing productive.

I receive the following error message.

IP 10.113.12.231 is the IP address of the target installation PC.


Thanks!!
ip: 10.113.12.231

FCS has its own policy based publishing tool. Why do you do not use this?.
You should find it on the server, where the first install was done.

Hello Bembi.
FCS doesn't have any target push installation.
I don't use SMS here, nor I have access to modify OUs in AD.

Resolved.
The install source should be used as a directory and not as a file.

Hello X01004753.-

I have the same problem but I do not undestand how you resolved it. What do you mean with a "The install source should be used as a directory and not as a file." ??.
