SDE Client not installing via GPO


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up our workstations so we can deploy images via the SmartDeploy Remote Image Deployment.  As per the instructions, I've edited the script provided to locate the path to the installer (Which I put in the SYSVOL folder on the DC) and the SmartDeploy Enterprise host.  I've created the GPO to run the script at startup, and as a test I've linked the GPO (and enforced it) to a test OU containing a few workstations.  

However, the SDE Client isn't being installed on those workstations even when I force an GPupdate and restart the computer.  I know the script works, because it will install the client when I run it (although a UAC prompt occurs).  I know the GPO is applied to the workstation, because it shows up in RSOP.  Yet, the client does not get installed.

I'd appreciate any input on this issue.  Thanks.

Getting computer startup scripts to work reliably, especially in Windows 10, is difficult.

We have a .msi solution, if you'd like to email us at support @ smartdeploy.com we can get that to you.
