I've come into an environment where they have an SMS 2003 installation, but it seems to have never been implemented 100% (there are a few packages that seem to be for testing).
I am new to SMS, and need a bit of guidance, here is what I have done:
-Obtained a 7zip MSI.
-Placed MSI on a network share (permissiosn are domain admin access only)
1. Create Collection
-Created a new collection in SMS named 7zip.
-Clicked the "Query Rule Properties" button (yellow), on the "Membership Rules" tab for the collection.
-Named the Query Rule "7zip" and chose "User Group Resource" for the Resource Class.
-Clicked "Edit Query Statement" and switched to the Criteria tab.
-Clicked the yellow star button to open the Criterion Properties general tab.
--Criterion Type: Simple value
--Where: User Group Resource - User Group Name
---Attribute Class: User Group Resource
---Alias as: <No Alias>
---Attribute: User Group Name
--Operator: is equal to
2. Created Group
-Created a new security group in AD named 7zip.
-Added my user account "jdoe" to the security group.
3. Created "Package From Definition"
-Right clicked Pagage, went to "New>Package From Definition"
-Browsed to and selected the 7zip MSI file, "Igor Pavlov" showed as publisher, "7-Zip 4.65" showed as name under "Package definition".
-Source File> Chose "This package does nto contain any files" (THIS MAY BE WRONG..?)
4. Created Advertisment
Package: Igor Pavlov &-Zip 4.65.......
Program: Per-user attended
When I log into a computer as the user "jdoe" I would expect either 7zip installation to launch automatically, or for it to appear in "Add-Remove Programs" under "Add New Programs".
What am I missing here? Do I need to configure group policy to use SMS or something?
