Publishing a *.msi package!

By wsouza ·
I'm doing some lab work in preping for the 70-219 exam. I tried to publish a msi package and link it to the default domain GPO. 1st I created a share and then put the msi file in the share I just created. 2nd I edit the default domain GPO and published the package to everyone. (When I did this, Windows displayed a warning message that it could not verify that my folder was a network share. D0 you want to continue, I chose yes) 3rd I went to a Professional machine and tried to install my packagethrough the Add/Remove programs. When It went looking for any programs on the network, Windows could not find any. I can see the folder as being shared on all my network PC, enen downlevel clients. What did I do wrong?

AFIK, MSI files are expected in the SYSVOL share or any folder below it. Seems more sense to use that one (already exists...) instead of making your own share...

Hope this helps,

When you are adding the MSI package in the GPO, you need to enter the full UNC path.

For Example. .

\\server\msi\winzip.msi

Not E:\msi\winzip.msi
