I'm trying to install Lotus Notes 8.5.2 Basic Fix Pack 1 using Active Directory Group Policy installation. I'm unpacking the files from the .exe provided by IBM to a local folder. Per IBM I can copy the contents of this folder to a network share and create a group policy with the .msi file then push the software to the clients. The fix pack is failing on install. I'm getting fatal error during installation errors in the event log. Any help with this would be great.

1) do users have admin rights on the local machine ?
if not are you using the elevated install rights ?

What does the install log say ?

What happens during a manual install by comparison.

I hope this helps !

Please use the attached files to enable logging.

Run the setup again.

Find the most recent file that follows the naming convention "%TEMP%\MSI?????.LOG" and attach it to this thread for analysis.
MSI-Verbose-Logging-ON.reg
MSI-Verbose-Logging-OFF.reg

Manual install from the network share does work. All staff are "user's" on their PC.

I'm able to push 8.5.2 basic client without a problem.

I'm assuming we are talking about the lotusclientupdate.log in my documents. We re-direct our my

documents to a home directory for each user on our network. When I look at this look I'm assuming

this log has the install of every client I've installed notes on. The file is 4332 lines.

Just some more info are servers are 2003 and our environment is XP SP3.

No the log I am asking for is the verbose MSI log generated by the MSI engine.  Sounds like you are receiving MSI errors.  

lotusclientupdate.log may be created by a custom action in the package.

Redirecting the MSI log to a network location usually creates some pretty nasty latency related problems - so again, I don't think this is the same log.

OK - I see now.  It is actually the Group Policy Agent having a problem.

Create the following registry key to turn on GPO software distribution agent logging:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics\
Appmgmtdebuglevel=dword:0000009b

Rerun the package.

Then check this log file: %windir%\debug\usermode\appmgmt.log

Here are some other important logging keys and their generated files if you need them: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc775423(WS.10).aspx
