Deploy the Agent via Group Policy

The Agent may be deployed either from the Group Policy Management Console or Active Directory Users and Computers depending upon the method previously used. Although the software may be deployed per user we recommend installing the software per computer.

  1. Depending on the method you previously used, go to the Group Policy Management Console or the Active Directory Users and Computers
  2. Right- click the newly created Group Policy Object (i.e. Agent MSI) and select Edit

    The Group Policy Management Editor displays.

  3. Choice Action
    To apply to a computer (recommended) Go to Computer Configuration (recommended)
    To apply to a user Go to User Configuration
  4. Expand Policies (SBS2008) > Software Settings
  5. Right-click Software Installation and select New > Package
  6. Enter the full Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of the Agent MSI file and package, for example \\SERVER\ NetworkInstaller\agent.msi
  7. Enter the full Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to the shared folder. Do not browse to the location as this may prevent the application of the Group Policy.

  8. Select the deployment method: Assigned
  9. Click OK and exit out of the Group Policy Editor
