Installation using group policies

You can install workstations in the network automatically with the help of the group policy. Proceed as follows:

  1. Define which components should be installed on the single workstations. Use the Windows® Installer in administrator mode for this. Start msiexec/a client.msi. You can now define a directory in which the prepared installation should be copied.
    This need to be an accessible network share. Then select the software components to be installed on the workstations and specify the estos UCServer computer.
  2. Start the Active Directory® user and computer management console in which you configure your domain users. Group your users (or computers) in such a way that you have organisational units. You can create group guidelines for each organisation-unit which controls the automatic installation of software.
    Open an organisatonal unit's properties.
    Go to Group policy. Add a new group policy.
    Open group guidelines with Edit.
    Add either under computer configuration - software settings - software installation or under user configuration - software settings - software installation a new package.
    Then select the installation package previously prepared via the administrative installation. Read the appropriate documentation on Windows Server®, Active Directory® and group policies.
