My AD domain is spread over several DC's located a different cities. Each server has a shared folder on it with the installation files for Office 2003. When new computers are configured at the main office they are placed in an OU which installs Office 2003 via a GPO pointing to installation files in the main office. Later when the computer is shipped to the remote office the computer is moved to a different OU structure created for each office. On that OU there is another GPO to install Office 2003 which points to the installation files for that office.

What is happening is after the computer is moved to its new OU and boots up on site it uninstalls office 2003 and then reinstalls it? I did not check the box for "Uninstall this application when it falls out of the scope of management". I thought when the computer came online it would just apply the new GPO. Since Office was already installed it would go quickly, but this does not seem to be the case.

Can anyone give me some guidance on this? Thanks.
