Windows server 2008 R2


  • Hey,

    I was wondering if there is a way to update JAVA on client computers through windows server 2008R2 without having to do it on all client computers manually? 

    Structure: Domain (city), in that domain we have a group: The roof, part of that group exists of a folder computers (46) and  a folder users (113).

    Now I want JAVA to do an update on all 46 client computers. Is that possible from te server?

  • Sure - you can deploy Java with Group Policy Software installation. You will need to download the latest offline version and save the MSI to a file share. Then create the GPO to deploy it. Exact instructions for an older version can be found on the link below. The steps still apply though.

  • I have executed al these steps with success, and the client's can't update Java anymore, so that's fine. But Java doesn't install the update on the clients computer. Am I missing something ?
