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?
Have you simply considered using your active Directory to publish the application via a Group Policy?
explains how to do it (and no, I will not Quote a 2 page Long checklist of steps to do).
PsExec... erk. OK for v-small environments, but doesn't scale into the enterprise. Seen plenty of bombed PSExec child processes / residual PSExecSvc services.
If AD based deployment isn't an option, and the clients are Win7/8, use WinRM.
You have three options:
But i recommend you to use psexec, because its so easy and stable.it has working for me about 3 years without any problem. the main role of psexec is to execute a command remotely on another computer, even the executable does not exists on remote computer.it may copy executable on remote computer and then executes it.
On unix based workstations, you may use WINEXE instead.
