  • problem deploying Office2003 throgh Group Policy

    guys, I've been having some difficulties deploying Office 2003 with group policy... here's what I did:
    1- create a distribution point, and install Office to share using "setup.exe /a"
    2- create a group policy for the OU where the host reside
    3- create a package in Computer Settings, browse to where PRO11.msi file and assign it to computers of that OU.
    4- do gpupdate /force at Server

    after all this, no signs of office at clients, if I remember well GP apply every 90min, so I log remotely to clients and do a gpupdate /force and rebooted... still didn't install

    I'm running out of options here... could some one make some suggestions?

    thanks

      well, rsop.msc is showing that the gp are not getting applied, event viewer(application) show some winMgmt errors... other than that everything seems normal, I'm getting all the shares mapped and printers installed through login script.... yet the the software still not getting deployed after resetting several times

      Thanks

        If RSoP shows the policy is not being applied, you will need to check into that first

            You are using a UNC path to the Office folder and NOT a drive letter.
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.
