  • MSI Re-direction

    Hi all,

    We're currently undergoing a migration to a different file server and I'm busy moving our deployment folder to the new server. I have read and followed Microsoft's support article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2395088) but I still can't get an existing policy take effect. I have changed the UNC path and it is the only one there. I have applied the GPO to a clean PC and it still takes a while to load, just as though it is installing the software from the GPO, but when I log in it hasn't installed and there are no errors in the event log.

    Any ideas? I really don't want to have to re-create the software installation GPOs and then redeploy the software.

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Not particularly a fix, but consider creating a DFS share on the new installation server, so that if you move again, you can just add a DFS folder target to the root.

    Have you checked RSoP/GPResult for processing errors, also permissions on the installation folder?
    There is also a specific diagnostic tool for software installations - addiag.exe, from the Server 2000 RK (available online still)
    See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...(v=ws.10).aspx for more info
