I recently pushed dot net and some in house software out to multiple windows 7 boxes it seemed to push fine but it took anywhere from a minimum of two reboots to up to five for the systems to download and install the software. I noticed that if the computer was on while I put the GP in to effect and I rebooted the pc GP would state pending a reboot. At this time i would reboot the pc again and sometimes If would install. Is there anyway to ensure that after one reboot the new software will be installed... Like if I install it on shutdown instead of boot up. I should note that all installs were successful but the reboot times would very without ryme or reason. Any suggestions would be great for future projects.

Hello,

In general, the applications deployments takes 2 reboot (The first take the information about the GPO, the second install and need to reboot to complete)
Sometimes 1 computer dont take the information from your DC, so it require an additionnal reboot..

thats what i thought but i figured there might be a work around like a shutdown script that would implement a gpupdate /force would make a difference.
