Hello.... Im trying to get Flash installed on my network via GPO... at the same time, I want to try and suppress the automatic update prompting that my users are currently being bombarded with.

From what I have learnt, I need to copy a mms.cfg file onto the users machine... And was wondering if I can manipulate the MST in a way so that it copies the file while installing.

My knowledge of MST's is pretty much limited to basic disabling autoupdate or eula_accept...... so I dont really know where to start with this...

OR if I am even approaching the situation correctly..... anyone able to shed some light?

i think you will find the problem in this case stems from the fact adobe runs CA's in the user space. If your deploying via GPO to a machine you will find no users logged in and as such the CA's will fail. Alterntives are conditions the CA's not to run if the SYSTEM account is the user actioning the request or move the GPO to user based.

If it helps we have deployed the mms.cfg file to the machines using a group policy preference (Files) in our environment

Hi Jimmy, this could be the solution. I'll do a bit of research.

Have you had any experience of user logins slowing down as you load up the amount of GPOs?

It seems to me to be self-evident that, as you increase the number of GPs applied to a user OU, the longer the user's log-in will take. The same applies to the machine start-up time as you load up machine-targeted GPs. That's one of the joys of GP and was one of the major motivations for my last client to move to SCCM-based deployments.
