Should GPO deployment just work?

Hi All,

Quick question I've created a Test OU on AD and put 2 test PCs in it. I then went to GPO deployment and selected to add that specific OU with the option to install on 32 / 64-bit systems. I assumed that after booting up either test machines it should just have had the GPO and install DA. 

That does not seem to be the case, nothing happens at all. Clearly I'm missing something but i'm not quite sure what. 

Sorry if the question is stupid I'm just getting used to a lot of new software in my new role.

  • We have the GPO enabled, but I don't think we have ever used it, it seems to take hours/days to do it and we always have logged in to the computer by then. When logging in for the first time using any account that has the SLOGIC profile script, it auto-installs Deskop Authority in the background. Of course now we have it in our standard image so it goes out on all the new builds anyway.

    For servers, under "global options" we have it set to not execute on "member servers" and "domain controllers" and it seems to work fine, it doesn't even install on our servers.

    A reminder - if you put DA into your image for installing on new computers, make sure you remove the GUID first, otherwise inventory reporting won't be accurate (we actually run a rule each year that deletes and rebuilds the GUID on every computer just in case of duplicates)
