  • Check out the MDOP Administrative Templates:

    There's been a few extra configuration options added, I believe.

  • You are going to deploy the client using GPO? Or set the configuration for the installed Client with Group Policy?

    Hotfix 5, is indeed a hotfix.

    I would suggest deploying the Client with a Software Distribution Tool and configure the settings via Group Policy. Or you could set the settings required via the Command Line. Personally I find the GPO template the easiest way to configure the clients.

    I'm not aware of a way to monitor that the clients got the GPO but they should upon rebooting, it's a standard GPO...gpupdate /force should also force the policy to update

  • Rory,

    is there a way to monitor client deployment using GPO.

    Let say I have to distribute 200 clients. How to monitor success or failure?

    Also, I guess that hotfix (5 now) is just a hotfix to the client in MDOP.

    (I found that sequencer in hot fix 4 is real Sequencer and not a hotfix).

    How you update client itself with hotfix?

    Thanks,

    Michael.

  • I have to create a pilot App-v for 50 new machines.

    Probably the best at this point just to include Client to the base OS image. I will use hotfix5 (will use newer if will be available in the moment of new deployment).

    Next year I am planning to introduce SCCM into production. So it will be another story.

    Or may be will look into 3 party stuff.

    Thanks for helping.
