Deploying VSE to non-compliant systems

Anyone know an easy way to deploy VSE on non-compliant systems.

I'm gonna try doing the following:

Click on the Pie Chart part which shows non-compliant systems (red), this then lists the non-compliant systems.

Next I select all the systems and move them to lost&found. Then create a deploy task for all systems in lost&found to get VSE.

Anyone aware of any easier ways?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Deploying VSE to non-compliant systems

Assuming you have filtering on in one form or another so that your clients get filtered back to where you want them regularly.....

create a folder with a clear all and install deployment task set to immediate
(remove all prior versions and install version xxx)

run report
move to folder
wake all
vse installs (or uninstalls old obsolete and installs)
filter machines back to tree location or leave them to do it themselves if you have this setup

you can of course set tagging and automated tasks to do this or just set a general deployment task for the tree

RE: Deploying VSE to non-compliant systems

My problem would be to put the systems back in the tree where they belong once the problem has been solved...
I'm thinking of tagging... (thanks to tonyb99) but am not sure how this will work.

Once I'm happy that a non-compliant machine has been fixed I then delete it from epo, then let the next ad sync put it back.

RE: Deploying VSE to non-compliant systems

I have a task set to install VSE every day at noon. That way the systems double check every day. If they are up to date, no problem, if not they soon will be. No need for re sorting. My compliance pie gets greener every day.

RE: Deploying VSE to non-compliant systems

I often thought about applying my vse deployment task to all of 'my organisation', was never sure if vse would be reinstalled etc causing lots of network traffic.

May give it ago, my green pie has a thin crust of red!

I have lots of distributed repositories to save on bandwidth.
