Systems Management Question
Can the agent be redeployed via GPO?
11/25/2014 1504 views
If I deploy the agent with our GPO with the agent MSI renamed to include our host and it succeeds, then runs for a few weeks or months, then the agent is manually uninstalled, should the GPO be able to redeploy the agent? I'm familiar with the registry values that manage this, but removing them doesn't have any effect. When I remove then and run gpupdate or reboot, the entries return, but the software doesn't install.
I removed the references to my GPO from HKLM\Software\....\Group Policy\AppMgmt. Though there are no keys under the AppMgmt key. Only 2 value entries with one named "GPOs" and it contains the UID's of previously applied GPOs. I deleted the UID referencing my Kace agent GPO and after rebooting a few times with no luck, I tried creating GPOs with an empty value, but no luck. The agent doesn't install.
I deleted (unlinked) the GPO, created a new GPO and tested and the agent still won't install via GPO, but it does install manually. And it will install when we build a new machine. It's only machines that had an agent installed previously 9by GPO), and then had it uninstalled manually that fail to install agents from a GPO again.
