Hello,

Could anyone tell me what program will be the best for what we need? We using windows 2000 / 2003 servers with Windows 2000 client computers.
The client pc's are installed by the RIS server and get MSI created software packages from the Active Directory GPO's.

The problem with AD is that I cannot:

* De-install software from a few computers
* Upgrade software to selected computers, thus not on al computers.
* To check if the software MSI is installed correctly on the client computers


What I need is a program that is integrated with Active Directory, that can do the following:

* De-install software from a few computers
* Uograde software to selected computers, thus not on all computers
* To check if the software MSI package is installed correctly on the client computers
* Install software before the login screen (Like what AD does)
* Install software when a user is logged in (pushing and using without logoff/restart computer).

In near feature we will upgrade client computers to windows xp.
I hope anyone can help me. If so, is there a trial software to download to see if it is the right software for the company?

Many thanks in advange.
Best regards,

Gerti-Tombo

hello gertitombo,

We have (had) the same problem here. Its depends on the $$$$$$ to spend. Our management wants to be on the first row for free. (you know what i mean). So we deploy to computers and not to users through the AD. Its free but not the best solution.
With the AD you can upgrade the software to computeres. With the upgradecode within the msi.

so if there a budget you can check out altiris.
