Lync Deployment via SCCM

trying to deploy Lync 2010 to machines Via SCCM and it fails every time. Per microsoft i created the package with silverlight and vcc as a pre-req then the advertisement installs Lync. it goes through fine for the 2 pre-reqs but fails when it gets to lync. this has failed for x32 and x64. any ideas?

I'm not too sure about SCCM but we are able to install silently by doing LyncSetup64.exe /silent

hey ThorinO
did you do that via group policy?

some may have had it installed but I think the lync installer detects and installs it if necessary.

Also if your interest heres a psexec script that will do the same. Just modify for your locations etc.

@echo off
set /p var= Enter Computer Name: 
set /p var2= Enter username: 
set /p var3= Enter Password: 

psexec -u domain\%var2% -p %var3% \\%var% cmd /c copy "\\lync1\lync client\test.cer" C:\

psexec -u domain\%var2% -p %var3% \\%var% cmd /c copy "\\lync1\lync client\certmgr.exe" C:\

psexec -u domain\%var2% -p %var3% \\%var% cmd /c c:\certmgr.exe -add C:\test.cer -s -r localMachine root

psexec -u domain\%var2% -p %var3% \\%var% cmd /c "\\lync1\lync client\en_lync_2010_x86_598490.exe" /install /silent

psexec -u domain\%var2% -p %var3% \\%var% cmd /c taskkill /im communicator.exe /F
