    Smart Notebook 11

    Hi, Im trying to push out smart notebook 11 on to the network so that it installs automatically on newly deployed pcs. I have created my mst on Smart Install Manager and then saved it to the network share with my msi file that I have obtained from smart. However whne I apply it in the group policy (with the modifier) and then reboot a client smart essentials flashes past in about 15 seconds or so and doesnt install. The error i from eventvwr on client is far from helpfull:

    Log Name: System
    Source: Application Management Group Policy
    Date: 19/09/2012 15:04:55
    Event ID: 102
    Task Category: None
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: SYSTEM
    Computer: TEST-INSTALL
    Description:
    The install of application SMART Education Software 2012 from policy New-Clients failed. The error was : %%1612

    Can anyone help with this because that error code turned up nothing for me except that the network source is not accessible. When I login I can access that network share so I assume it is ok ?

    Thanks

    The error is an msiexec error - List of Error Codes and Error Messages for Windows Installer Processes in Office 2000 products

    Namely, the source can't be accessed. This is normally down to permissions. For deployments, I have a share with 'everyone' having read only access on both NTFS and share permissions. It seems to do the job fine.

    for the deployment share i add the domain computers share as in the guide i read about deployment its specified that this specific group be added to access the folder where MSI is shared from.

    Hmm doesnt seem to make any difference i have everyone full access. Might it be because Ive used an ip not a dns name ? eg \\192.168.0.1\software\Smart\setup.msi
    obviously this isnt best practice but should still work

    ahh ok for future reference and for others just make sure your MST file is still using the network path because on my server it had defaulted to local browsing and then was failing because it couldnt find the specified mst file
