Hmm. Interesting idea about the Collection but I wonder if the Machine Policy Pull time would work with the pace of a help desk ticket.

... "going against the grain of what MS is trying to accomplish" ... leadership wants what leadership wants. I pass both options back to them and see what they choose. I'm just trying to make life easier for my techs.

@BadDos Yeah. I know. It sounds crazy but that's what leadership wants. If you write that up as answer and I don't find something better, you get the green check mark.

@BadDos - It's not that we need rights, it's that management does not want the software to be visible/installable by normal users. I suggested using the App Catalog Approval mechanism but that was deemed to be too much process overhead.

comment Potential traffic issues on one big(ger) subnet
@Kev Oh and my comment about "being overly clever" is just general advice that I throw out there any time I see a subnetting question. You too can learn from my mistakes! :(

comment Potential traffic issues on one big(ger) subnet
@Kev Not trying to slam you. Just /8 for 20 clients is way oversized and while I don't have specific examples on why this is bad off the top of my head it fills me with a vauge and creeping sense of dread (humor!). I think voretaq7's intention is to use each octet as a organizational structure but your resulting subnets would still be sized for the number of clients. Maybe another question would be good - "What are negative implications of using large subnets?" I am sure someone with more experience than me could give you some reasons for concern.

comment SCCM software deployment - does user need to be logged in, or only on the network?
@BigHomie We got IBCM all setup and then our security plan got held up in red-tape. In five years I'll let you know how it turns out.

comment What, exactly, is the SCCM client doing when it installs an .msi for a system?
@alx9r Sure. Make sense. But if works via psexec but doesn't through SCCM you could do something super hacky and just have the client call psxexec... I may or may not do this... :(

@alx9r Yeah. There's more than one way to skin a cat... er Application. Apparently. I love the Application-Program model, better detection logic, supercedence, Application Catalog, etc. For crappy (uh "creative") MSI installers I just use the Script Installer Deployment Type and call msiexec directly (or alx9r could use psexec).

Ah. Disregard. I had it the other way around. I was thinking Win32_Product vs. Win32_AddRemovePrograms. blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2012/04/19/…

Add or Remove Programs is special - I can't remember why but it has something to do with the WMI classes being regenerated? Is it possible your software installs fine but just doesn't register in Add or Remove Programs? @bighomie - What's your thoughts?
