I was wondering if anyone has come across this issue before? The issue is with performing an upgrade of office 2003 to office 2007. I seem to be having a large number of failures 50-90% when deploying office 2007 to 2 or more computers at the same time. Installing to just 1 computer is always successful (100%), but 2+ always leads to a large failure percentage. The logs indicate that the package is not getting downloaded fully and fails along with Hash errors, but 1 computer always manages to successfully install Office 2007. This issue occurs whether I'm using a UNC share or a webshare.
The UNC Share package and the Webshare package are on different servers. Both are configured to download first and then run.
Office 2007 is customized with a MSP file in the updates folder. I'm not using config.xml
The Distribution method is an "emergency distribution" that downloads Office 2007 to the sdmcache and then runs. No bandwith throttling is enabled.
I have gone through the great advice given at http://forum.landesk.com/archive/index.php/t-9341.html
Just downloading Office 2007 using Multicast to the sdmcache gives the same failure rate.
Have not tried "Run from source" delivery method, but do not really want to.
Have not created any batch/vbscript to download office 2007 and run, or run from network share.
Any advise would be appreciated.
