Client Deploy Problems... - 18.Aug.2004 9:12:00 PM

I have a windows 2000 domain.

The ISA server is connected to the domain.

None of my users are local power users or admins of their machines..

The problem I am having is deploying the client. I setup everything in GPO to assign the client to the users. When a user logs in, I can see where is says installing the firewall client but it never appears in the process, or the task bar.

It also doesnt set my proxy information in the Internet Exploere options...

Do my users need to be powerusers/admins of their machine to be able to send them the client via GPO???

Do I need to set another GPO that enables them to install the firewall client...I'm sorta lost...

Hi C,

Assign to *machines* never assign to users.

HTH,

Will the users need local admin rights? Or will the firewall be installed before the user ever logs in...

Either way its not working...At least not the way I'm doing it...It doesnt seem to hard..

Make sure you are assigning it the your computers. When you assign the group policy the computers must be in the OU or sub OU.

Here is an example:

OU=Domain (default Domain Policy)
SUB OU=MAIN (Main Group Policy)
SUB OU=XP Systems (XP-Systems Policy)
SUB OU=Accounting XP Systems (Accounting Software Deployment Policy)

All Accounting Computers are in the Accounting XP Systems.
The Group Policy "Accounting Software Deployment Policy" has the firewall client assigned in the computer section of the policy.

Hope this helps!

P.S.
Clients do not need admin rights.
The software should deploy before they login.

HI Just following up.

Thanks to the above poster, I know understand that you need a seprate OU for computers. I named mine WORKSTATION COMPUTERS and applied a computer GPO and everything went perfect.

THanks again!

Hi Cytranic,

If you assign to machines, the Firewall client software is installed before the user logs on, so the user doesn't need to be an admin.

HTH,
Tom

Hi Jerry,

Good point! You definitely don't want to assign the Firewall client to Servers, so you do need to create an OU for those machines you want the Firewall client software installed on.

Thanks!
Tom
