Systems Management Question
Need help with agent provisioning
I have a lot of clients already provisioned, and in the past we have always used the built in agent provisioning from the K1000. Due to security changes, the provisioning no longer works from the K1000. I'm looking into other ways to provision the agent going forward. It seems like group policy would be the best option but I had some questions regarding this method.
1. How will the clients that were already provisioned from the K1000 react or be affected by a new GPO that installs the agent? Will this cause any problems for them?
2. What is the best way to update agents going forward? The K1000 has handled updates in the past but I'm assuming I'd need to disable that and handle it through GPO. Will I be able to update agents through group policy that were not originally installed by the GPO? I've seen conflicting information about setting up the GPO to "Allow Users to continue to use the software, but prevent new installations" versus "Immediately uninstall the software from users and computers" when updating it for new versions.
Many thanks if someone more experienced can give me some insight on this. The documentation and questions I've been able to find seem outdated.
