Pushing Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 via AD

Hi!

I know about deploying it via the console and via Migration and deployment wizard.
I need to use Active Directory instead to deploy it, as not all the clients show up in those 2 methods.

I was thinking of something like Login Script. I have the client as one .exe file that is shared, and everybody has access rights to it.

Clients are both XP and Win7 , they have Symantic AV 10 or 11 (for those I succeeded to install with Wizard or Console).

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your answers.

I'm trying Clonyxlro suggestion, but then I ran into the problem mentioned here, looks like a risky solution they are suggesting there, but I will consider it. ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Miscellaneous/Q_21998415.html

Then I checked SSharma login script, it looks great, but I have some issue here. the users have the old Sav 10 installed, would this affect anything when checking if it is installed already?

Thanks

Thanks for the answers.
Group policy was the best way to use. I have some corrupted group policy , but in other domains it went so smooth.

Script is great too, the only issue I faced was that computers auto-restart after installation without a warning, hope we can add some line to prevent that.
Another line should be added to check in C:\Program Files (x86)   folder for those who have x64 systems, and used the 32 bit version.

Thanks guys
