Group Policy Installation Files Not Found
Interesting bug I have encountered. I have been trying to get Group Policy to work and do an assigned installation to the computers that connect to the network domain. I've been stumped as it hasn't worked once and never done it before, though I followed instructions from Microsoft, guides here, everywhere, nothing works! I'm using MS Office 2007 and MS Works Compatibility Packs to test this out as we need them across the whole school anyway.
I brought up the Classlink 7 Default Domain Policy (since the Viglen interface won't let me edit GP Settings for computers as the page dies) using the Microsoft Management Console and put a new Software Installation in Computer Configuration -> Software Settings -> Software Installation. The files are held in \\servername\d$\blahblah\GPolicy and this is shared to allow Admins and Techs full control and Students and Teachers read access. The packages are accessed using \\servercluster\GPolicy and use Assigned to propagate the packages to computers.
Looking at Event Viewer on a laptop logged into a user account that I use for Library Supervision (giving me plenty of time to pore over these technical mess ups), it comes up with suppressed errors that are shown only in the Event Log.
Anyone have any idea whats up? I have given read access and you can see the folder with the installations when logged in but no luck. Doesn't even work on tech accounts that see everthing with full admin rights. It is recieving the Policy updates but isn't able to find the MSI files.
