I am setting up software installation through active directory. I have it working and have tested the deployment of this package through a few test machines. Now I want to deploy it to about 30 other computers. Sometimes I might need to deploy it to 150 computers.
I have my computers in two OUs. One called local pc and the other called remote pc. I have the GPO linked to both OUs.
I am using security filtering to have this installed only on those machines that need this piece of software.
I am filtering by computer name because I was afraid that if I filter by user that if UserX logged into their machine it would install it and then the next day they logged into another computer (say our conference room machines) it would install it there as well. Is this correct?
I only want it installed on the user's home machine. Anyway, when I try to add a machine to security filtering it by default only searches for users and groups so I have to go in each time and add the check box to 'computers' and then it only lets me add a single computer at a time... thus I have to click add again and then go into object types and click computers and then search again. This could get a little work heavy when adding 30 - 150 computers! Specially given we want to push all of our software out like this now.
Anything I'm missing to make this easier? If I filter by person will it install everywhere they login or just the first time?
