John's right, they'll connect to that share if/when they need to self-heal.

From reading between the lines of your question, I figure you thought that, in this configuration, Office would RUN from that location. It will, if that's an option you choose for your set-up, but of course most will choose the sensible default, i.e. to install to the local drive.

yes..

they will attempt to contact that point during any self healing requirements.

you should not update that folder for this reason unless you are thinking about updating the source locations to another location.

you should read about self healing if you are not aware of this..

there is an article on self healing in my blog here http://johnmcfadyen.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!9DD01136FC094724!123.entry

i think ohotfix is a better method than patching the admin point. '

originally back in the day ms used to suggest patching the admin point, later they retracted that information and suggested not to use patched admin points in preference of admin point used in conjunction with ohotfix.

the reasoning behind this is you only need a single deployment folder and all different machines would be catered for with a single deployment mechanism.

if you patch your admin point into the same folder be aware that you can potentially break self healing on machines that are already deployed from that location.

Oh yes I got it, but it is English language... I found the next trick...

I download 02ksp3.exe file and I executed

Run... "path\o2ksp3.exe"  /c

And that command permit me extract the files (ohotfix.exe, ini and dll, and  msp files), later on I ran ohotfix.exe and it installed the SP3 (in Spanish).
I did an test changing the source path into Registry and I put the new path (the administrative point) and ohotfix.exe ran, too !!!

SO, I need change all the paths in all the machines over network... I have the entry but I need send it...

and I need to do one package of ohotfix.exe and send it by SMS 2003, or similar because it needs run under administrative permissions... and a lot users account not have administrator account...

Any idea?? or suggestion??

You're getting a 'Typical' install because, IIRC, that is the default which Office uses.

Download the Office 2000 Resource Kit and use the Customisation Wizard to create a transform. During that Wizard's execution, you choose the options you want for the eventual install and the details will be recorded in the transform. Save the transform in the same place as the MSI, to keep things simple. Then, change your command line to:

  msiexec /i  "\\server\office_2000_admin_installation\data1.msi" TRANSFORMS="\\server\office_2000_admin_installation\[name_of_transform]" /passive [other command line arguments]

oh !!! what a kind of situation mine !!!
Ok, I will be doing it...

One question more, I installed office 2000 r-1 adminstrative point... and when I send the script

msiexec /i  \\server\office_2000_admin_installation\data1.msi  /passive

Both, cd-1 and cd-2 are installed as "tipicall" instead "full"...  I don't know if this script is correct or maybe creating  one  mst file ???

Thanks a lot by your help !

What a mess! :)

I didn't look very hard but I don't think you'll find a pre-built SR3 (as in O2KSP3a.exe). I'm happy to be proved wrong, though.

To be honest, if this were me, I'd go ahead and create the admin install point and set the resulting deployment to uninstall all previous versions before installing SR3. The Office Resource Kit contains a Customisation Wizard which you should use to create the transform. Doing it any other way will drive you insane.

mmmmmmm....ok, ok...
Let me explain...

I have some machines where office 2000 sr-1 Spanish Mexico was installed from CD-ROM and others by shared network folder, no one by administrative way.
(I have the original CD media of office 2000 sr-1)

So I need install Office 2000 Service pack 3.

Later on, I am looking by office 2000 service pack administrative.... I only can get O2ksp3.exe but I need O2kSp3a.exe in Spanish Mexico.

I never installed any office version by administrative point and I am reading about it, and I don't know if when I install from administrative point, is the installation "Complete" ??
I have some office 2000 sr-1 in Windows 2000 sp4 and some others in Windows XP sp2.

Thanks a lot !!!

Juan,

If I recall correctly, SP3 is a collection of patches so you would be best advised to perform an administrative install of your current package, SR1, apply the patches to the administrative install, then deploy the newly-patched package from the admin install point. If, for some reason, you no longer have the original SR1, it can be downloaded from here  http://www.microsoft.com/office/orkarchive/2000ddl.htm. Further information can be obtained here http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2000/HA011524901033.aspx
