    NetOp - Deployment via AD

    Anyone using NetOp (2, 3 or 4) and deploying via AD?

    I've got this working, but every time I do it it seems like I have to tweak something new to make it work. If anyone has the definitive method for this I'd love to hear it. Yes, I know I can push the client out from the server or whatever, but my aim is to have all software deployed via AD so that PC builds are as automated as possible.

    Not an answer to your question I'm afraid - but...

    The Student deployment thingy worked a treat when I was trialling NetOP but has never worked properly since we bought it!! Is that what you mean when you say push client out from the server?

    Yes, the Student deployment feature works well, but as I said, I really need my PC builds to be complete and not require extra bits of software to have to be squirted on to them after a rebuild.

    My most recent install of NetOp (4.0) had a problem because of a missing line in C:\WINDOWS\NETOP.INI. This caused the Teacher module to load with an error message about TCP/IP sockets. It was clashing with the Student module. I got it working, but had to write a VB script to manually modify the INI file and assign it as a startup script - yuk ops:

    NetOp bad. NetSupport Manager good, AND has built in deployment tools.

    NetOp's not my choice for doing remote support/management, it's used by curriculum staff (teachers or whatever) to either transmit a single screen to all other PCs in the room, or to lock all the PCs in the room etc. I use UltraVNC as a means of PC remote control.
