How to monitor the deployment of a software through Active directory install

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have plan to deploy Oracle Java (JRE)  through Active Directory group policy computer assignment.  I created the .msi file, a have modified the property table of msi file to disable automatic updates. I have a few questions i need to understand:

1. What happens if computer already have software installed? For example the software has been previously manually installed?
2. How can i be certain that this software is not installed on every restart (on every GPO policy execution)?
3. Is there a way to monitor the progress of deployment (some sort of log file with all installations?)
