Windows Group Policy

Having an issue with some of our 32 bit machines. I created a Windows Group Policy, and have disabled the sections for UAC. This works fine for the 64 bit machines. The bundles seem to fail on some (but not all) the 32 bit machines. The bundle copies a file to c:\program files, and then runs and extract all files to another folder in c:\program files\. It says access denied. On most machines, it works fine. If I goto the machine and try to copy the file manually, it tells me I will need to provide permission to copy to this folder and I must click continue. Then if I run the file, I get accessed denied, run as administrator, runs fine. The machines I'm have issues with are all 32 bit machines. I've tried making a policy on a 32 bit machine, but I seem to get the same error. I did disable the first policy before testing on the new machine that I reimaged. I did run gpupdate and gpupdate /force, zenworks refresh. Any ideas?

Do have the copy and extract actions set to run as System/DynamicAdmin or user?

Re: Windows Group Policy

Allenflame,

confused: you say Group Policy, then you talk about bundles...

Re: Windows Group Policy

Sorry for the confusion Mr. Pond. I am using (or trying to) Group Policies to disable UAC and get rid of file permission popups. I created the policies using a Windows 7 64bit machine. It seems like pretty much all the 64 bit machines and some of the 32 bit work as planned, no problems pushing out apps, files (using bundles). We started trying to test last week, and the bundle basically copies a folder from a network drive to c:\program files. I could not get it to copy on the 32 bit machines. Worked fine on 64 bit. Also, it copies a file in c:\program files to another name, which it has to overwrite.

Re: Windows Group Policy

Allenflame,

why not use a group policy, instead of a bundle?

Re: Windows Group Policy

He is using a GPO.
He claims the GPO is failing, which result in bundles failing.

Keep in Mind, that you need separate GPOs for 32-bit and 64-bit Devices.
By Default, ZCM puts in an Architecture Sys Req to block GPOs created in
64-bit devices runing on 32-bit devices and visa versa.

Not sure why ZCM does this, but I presume there is a valid reason.
