Trying to install Spark to a number of workstations on an Active Directory managed domain via group policy, but for the life of me, I can’t get it to work. Maybe someone can fill me in on what’s wrong.
I’ve created an OU, placed all the computers (and users) in the OU, and created a group policy object on it. Under software settings, I told it the msi package to install (which is in a network share that everyone has access to), etc. etc
However, if I set it up under Computer configuration, nothing happens. If I set it up under User configuration, it… well, it shows up in add/remove programs without any disk space number, and with only a “remove” option (when clicked on), but it’s not installed, and there are no icons or start menu items created.
I don’t know if this has something to do with the fact that installing the msi raw isn’t fully automated/unattended… but I’m guessing that has something to do with it. Note that I’m a “newbie” at pushing software via GP.
any advice would be appreciated. thank you for your time.
