Software Deployment Question
Patching With Group Policy...
I have a question with deploying software via Group Policy and Patching. It appears I have a Policy working where I simply point to my .msi and away it goes.
I don't think you can deploy .msp's with GPO so I was wondering if I need to create an administrative install of the original .msi...
msiexec /a MyFile.msi TARGETDIR="c:\SharedFolder" /qb!
I haven't tried to deploy the initial package in this way yet, but from what I've read, when a patch is needed, simply apply the patch to the Admin dump...
msiexec /a MyFile.msi /p MyPatch.msp.
With this second command, I'm wondering if I point to the original .msi or the shell .msi that is dumped during the first Administrative install. ??
Any help or points to information on how to deal with patching would be great.
