Software Deployment Query
Im not too sure if this is the correct area to have this thread so if there are MODS here, please move accordingly.
Onto my question.
I look after around 40 Infant, Junior and Primary schools in the local area, the systems that i have been putting in place has been made generic across all site which is good and allows for consistancy when other techs cover my schools at work.
However one thing i havent really had time to sit down and trial is making packaged software generic. Currently im using packaged MSi's from say SchoolA but when i go to SchoolB who's server is named according to the school i have to either edit the packages where needed which TBH is only a small pain, or repackage the software.
All software on my servers reside in the following path: \\servername\Apps\Software Title
Is there a way when packaging that i can build a library of software where the server name isnt relevant and get away without having to edit them due to server names being different. For the majority of software its ok but when i comes to packages with central data paths (sherston) its inconvenient and time consuming.
Ive been using WinInstall LE and have had a quick go on WISE which i think i will move over too eventually.
All comments welcome guys. :)
