I have remote access to a
Windows Small Business Server 2008 machine. There are about 5 workstations connected to this network.
How can I make every workstation install an
.msi package without having to remotely connect to each workstation?
Without Group Policy you will need PSExec from sysinternals:
Customize and run this command to your needs:
Microsoft has a function in Group Policy that allows an administrator to "assign and publish" software to client computers. The computers then install the software when they first start up and receive the assignment. Note that the computers must be members of an Active Directory domain to be able to do this.
