Windows 2000 and Group Policy.Locked
I am having problems setting and getting working the automation of deploying software through the group policy.
I have a Windows 2000 Advance server on a hub with a Windows 2000 workstation which can login to the domain. Both machines are running SP2 and have had all the network configuration done on them. I have configured all of the Active Directory stuff and now I want to get MS Office 2000 onto the workstation via a group policy. So far the steps that I have done to set this up is asfollows:
1) I have created a network share and assigned it with the correct permission.
2) I have run the setup.exe for office from the CD-ROM with the /a through a Command Prompt and then selected the above directory as where the program should be installed to.
3) I have then setup the policy using UNC paths to the software for the Group policy and not using the direct path. E.G. \\server\appinstall\mso2k
4)The setup I have used is to assign the OU the software policy again using UNCpaths.
4) I have then powered up the workstation and then logged in with a user account which is in the OU where the policy has been setup how ever no icons come up on the start bar for the office applications. So this does not appear to have worked,,
I have had a look at various websites about setting this up and I have followed the instructions through how ever this still does not work. Any advice given would be helpful.
Thanks a lot.
