How to install MSI through GPO
Posted on 2011-09-20
The procedure looks simple enough but when I try it, it doesn't work. I applied the GPO to a container containing several other containers, high up in AD. The software I want to install is a small client that takes literally seconds to install, but nothing is happening.
I have run gpudpate /force on a test machine and tried logging on and off several times to no avail. The UNC path is correct, and the package wa set to Assign.
In the end, I browsed to the distribution point and installed it manually. No problem. But how to get it to work automatically? It seesm the GPO is not workin for some reason.
