Firstly, I can't use Group Policy as our team doesn't manage that. The company is a massive FTSE company with a team for every aspect of IT you can think of.
Our team needs a way of installing programs remotely either by batch files or scripts utlising Windows Installer and .msi files.
I've so far managed to install Java using psexec (see below)
psexec \\pcname -u *username* -p *password* -i msiexec.exe /a "msilocation\install.msi"
This works without any problems. However I want something a little more automatic than that.
However what I would like to do is to be able to run a script or batch file from my machine that will install the msi on all remote workstations listed. I'm pretty certain you can list workstations in batch file but I maybe wrong.
I'm not to fussed if I have to do the fix in a script or batch file to be honest. I just can't use Group Policy etc.
