I am trying to impliment an mass installation of or RMM tool on a network. I have created a GPO and a some computers have been added to a group to test the GPO. Currently none of the systems have had the software install.

How can I ensure that the GPO has been applied, and is there a way to force the installation to happen without the clients needing to reboot there computers?

Gpresult /r will tell you what group policies have been applied. However a software installation is a computer policy and will only run on reboot. There is not way to trigger it without a reboot.

If you are looking for something that will allow an install without reboot you would need a tool like PSexec, SCCM, PDQ deploy, etc.

So now I am trying to install using PSExec, but keep getting handle invalid errors.. here is the line i am using:

psexec \\SYSTEM -u [local | network admin] -p [password] cmd /c msiexec.exe /i \\[server]\[msi file]\my msi.MSI /q /qn /norestart.

Tried both domain and local admin - ideas?
