Hi all - this is my first post here.

I'm looking for an affordable deployment tool for Windows 2000 workstations that has the bare minimum of reliance on windows-specific features.

We have about 75 Windows 2000 workstations, with Linux + Samba on the server side - no Active Directory. I'd like to automate the process of installing security patches and product upgrades.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Two I know of for sure are Unicenter and Altiris's Deployment Solution provides many snap-ins- including Unix client support.

I've not yet supported a client with Unix workstations to be managed- is anyone else out there doing this? What do you use to get the job done?

Another consideration is GFI's LanGuard Network Security Scanner. There is a 30 day evalation version. It is a lower cost, effective product that performs a variety of functions.
