depldeploying software via gpo instead of batch
I'm working for a school where there is alot of software deployed.
The meathod has been done with writing a GPO for the title of the software and then adding a batch file as a startup script that runs the msi silently.
This works but is time consuming writing scripts and making policys etc.
The way we did it at my last school was pushing out msi's via gpo with transforms if nesecery, was then very easy to remove or upgrade titles as we went along.
My question is. If we bin the script meathod and do it gpo way, will all the software on every pc reinstall again or will software deployment know its there regardless of how it go there and skip them.
Ideally gpo meathod would of been good to implement when the school moved to windows 7.
I'm happy to convert them over, just dont want the 700 or so clients breaking there software.

I'm pretty sure changing from script to GPO would re-install all software again, because (as far as the GPO's concerned), the software isn't on the client.
It might be better to phase it in, so anything new or anything that needs updating is deployed using GPO.

I thought that maybe the case.
