Deploy software using Distribution or Scripting?
04/05/2017 1311 views
In our environment we are rolling out Windows 10 using SCCM. Since we are a company that has a large portion of our workforce remotely we have decided to install Direct Access so our remote users can receive the Win10 upgrade.
To deploy Direct Access we have attempted to use software distribution via Kace but found a crazy error that we cannot quite figure out.
DA (direct access) has an MSI install that needs run as well as several Reg keys that need to be installed for our specific network information. We packaged them all up and created a install.bat file. The install instructions have the files load up and then run the bat file. Kace will prompt in the lower right hand corner with the only Option being Finish. Once the user presses the Finish button this will execute the batch file to run.
We have several instances where the batch file runs and the software will install and report back to Kace that the software has installed successfully but there are other instances where the batch file will run, install the software, reboot and then prompt the user again to install the software moments after the computer reboots.
What is the trigger that indicates a software push was successful?
We want the users to be informed of the software install because it requires a reboot for completion and we also want it to report back to Kace as a successful install. Looking for help to make this work. Thank you.
