Don't know why you would use an IP, but in this case it shouldn't make a
difference. It usually comes down to permissions.

When you set up the deployment, did you point it to an IP address or a
server name?  I had this issue once in the past when I used an ip
address and found out it will cause you to get access denied.

        Yep, I've always made it a point to grant explicit rights to
Domain Computers if it is a per-computer assigned installation.

        Andrew-

        Was this a per-computer deployment? If so, then the installation
happens in the context of the machine's domain account. In the past I've
noticed that Authenticated Users was not sufficient to solve this
problem, even though it should have been. I'm not clear why this is, but
perhaps setting up some auditing on the server sided would have pointed
the way. What I've seen, as a solution, is to grant either Domain
Computers or Everyone explicit access to the files.

        Hi all,

         

        I've just created a GPO for deploying Acrobat 9 using the
standard policy software installation (not GPP) and added a transform
file to get around things like desktop shortcuts and EULA agreements.

         

        However, when I came to deploy it I got errors about not being
able to access the files.

         

        On Friday I also created a GPO to deploy Java. This had exactly
the same access rights as the Acrobat files but worked first time.

         

        I managed to get the Acrobat installation to work by giving
'Everyone' read, list and execute permissions to the folder containing
the files but am confused as to why I had to do this.

         

        I thought the software installation used elevated privileges to
install software? Can anyone explain to me (to help my GP understanding)
why this is the case? In case you need to know, our environment is 100%
Server 2003 SP2 and I was deploying to a XP SP3 machine.

         

        Thanks

         

        Andrew
