Need advice on using SAPgui 7.10 installation server
At first I thought that I could push an install to specific PCs using the installation server. Now I know there is no push function. From the install guide, it looks like logon scripting is the closest procedure to "pushing" the install. From talking with our network admin it sounds doable but he's not big on logon scripting.
I either need advice on using the logon scripting method or on using a better method. Any recommendations?

About scripting ... are you have AD in enterprise? We use 2 ways to implement it without any other tools like SMS. 1) We create LSH,any package, after create some *.BAT file and add in this file command to installation (and other commands if need , for example copy INI file and other required) like this
SERVERNAME\SAPGUIINST\Setup\NwSapSetup.exe /Silent /Package="ALL" (it's for package "ALL")
After this file put on same network SHARE, where all have an access ,and in forced situations peoples (or remote admins) only executes this *.BAT file.
2) In logon script for AD user add same line with some checks, try to read in Microsoft forums.
