Server 2012 R2 Standard cannot push out MSI via GPO

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I am having a bear of a time with this, I have created a GPO to push out an MSI to a test windows 10 workstation. The MSI

    is Symantec AV software, I have created the proper folder with permissions to the Everyone object and used the UNC path

    in the GPO to get to that path. When I do a gpupdate /force on the PC and reboot the PC, the GPO get enabled however the MSI never gets pushed out to the PC. There are no errors in any of the logs just good confirmations that the GPO was accepted.

    I have also tried this with a windows 7 PC with same results. I do want to mention this, I created an OU in AD and moved the 2 computers from the computer OU to the test OU. In the GPM console, I created the GPO off of the test OU and not directly under

    the Domain name (school.local)

    Any ideas as to what I am missing here. By the way, this did work once last week and never worked since.

    Thank you -Al

  • Hi AI,

    the Domain name (school.local)

    >>>Would you explain more about this?

    And I suggest you run the command GPresult /h C:\gpresult.html with an administrator on the client and post it to us for further research.

    Best Regards,
