    Issues when installing software not stored on the Landesk Server

    Rookie

      Hi,

       

      We are currently trying to deploy Lync 2013 to our overseas offices. Due to bandwidth issues I have placed a copy of the installation folder on our server in New York and granted Everyone Full access. To do this deployment I am  then using a batch file package file to run the setup.exe.

       

      So far I have tried the following 2 scripts:

       

       

      1.Installing from a UNC path:

       

      CD\
      \\nycdc03\data3\Software\Lync2013\x86\setup.exe

      gpupdate

       

       

      2.Installing from a mapped drive:

      CD\
      NET USE Z: \\nycdc03\data3\Software\Lync2013\x86\
      Z:
      setup.exe
      net use z: /delete /y

      gpupdate

       

      I am able to run batch file 1 on a test machine outside of Landesk and it works correctly. If I run either via Landesk the task completes reporting success. But does not actually install Lync2013

       

       

      In our other overseas offices we are using Bit Torrent Sync to deploy the installation package and using the batch file below via the same batch file package to install it which is working.

       

      CD\
      C:\Data\Toronto\Software\Lync2013\x86\setup.exe
      gpupdate

       

      Has anyone got any suggestions on what might be going on here. Is there some issue with installing software from UNC Paths or remote mapped drives?
