We want to install hotfix file(msi format) to all client machines, but do not want to locally login every machines.

Can anyone help?

Deploy hotfix to clients

What opperating system are you using? If you are using W2K, then you can use GPO to distribute the hotfix. Go to the following web page for more info on using GPO to distribute software:

You can also use Microsoft SMS or one of many different software distribution packages available. This could be an overkill for just a hotfix, but if you have a lot of clients, you could distribute all software using this. Go to the following to get more info on SMS:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/distsys/part4/dsgch23.asp

If you are just distributing hotfix or security patches for Windows, Exchange, SQL, and Office you could use a product like HfNetchk Pro or UpdateExpert. These products allow you to distribute security patches and hotfixes over the network and schedule the updates.
