Migrate software deployment server
I'm retiring an old physical server running W2k3 in favour of a virtual W2k8R2 box. Problem is that this server has (and has always had) the deployment share for group policy deployed MSIs. There is no DFS in place, and the GPOs point directly to the MSI installers.
I've tried removing the entry in the GPO and selecting the "allow users to continue using the software but prevent new installations" option, and then re-adding the software with the new path but this still causes a redeployment even though the software is already installed.
Is there any way to get this job done without every machine on site redeploying every piece of software?!

give the new server the same name as the old one

Not via GPO (as far as I am aware) but you could script it..... for e.g something like this will check if a program dir exsists, and if it doesn't will install the MSI!
IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\......" GOTO Fin
msiexec /i \\path\to\msi /q
