  • windows 2003 shadow copy setup

    I work for a school and just started implementing 400 user accounts and would like to setup Shadow Copy on the shared folders. On our windows 2003 server I already enabled shadow copy. I would like to know how I can install the client software on the windows 2000/XP workstations. I don't think it can be done via gpo, unless it was pushed down as a package? or maybe as a logon script? if anyone has experience setting this up I'd appreciate some help.

    Hi,

    For the XP machines I'd make sure they have at least SP2 installed. If you have SP2 on XP clients it is installed by default.
    For Windows 2000 clients you need to consider the following:
    At least SP3 and make also sure you install the Client on the server as well.
    You should be able to deploy the Shadow copy client through GPO. It's a small MSI package that you can assign through Software installation setting or alternativelly create a computer startup script by using MSIEXEC.

    Cheers

      Works fine for us going throgh GP, assigned to computers which would be preferable to assigning it to users.

        The twcli32.msi installs fine through user cofiguration, software settings, assigned applications. GPO
