I've been trying to follow along other threads that explain the Preferred Servers concept. I think I have a fair understanding but I want to ensure that this is working here.
I have 3 Sites. NC, DC, GA.
GA is our core server and the file structure is as follows \\%CORE%\ldlogon\SWpackages\
The NC and DC Sites have preferred servers with the addresses as follows \\%PREFSERVER%\ldlogon\SWPackages\
What I'm looking to do is take all of our standard software, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash Player, Java and create silent installations to house in the Prefferred Servers share.
For example, in the DC site I would create a Distribution Package for Adobe Reader 9.3. and I would place the package in \\\\%PREFSERVER%\ldlogon\SWPackages\Adobe Reader\9
Now what I'm trying to understand is how Adobe Reader 9.3 gets put on all the machines....... Do all the agents every so often look to the preferred server for any new software and try to retrieve it?
Can someone help me fill in the details here....?
