    I am responsible for about 225 Windows XP PCs on a Novell network. If anyone has experience pushing updates or new applications to several hundred PCs, I am looking for the best (easiest) way to do this. I just finished an upgrade that I did using sneaker-net, and it was too much.

    LOL, Sneakernet, haven't heard that term in a while....

    here's a couple places to start digging,
    mostly the type of thing like running them from a network share on some server via batch file or script, plus Microsoft has quite a few options in the remote deployment arena

    It may or may not be exactly what you're looking for, but at least it's a start.


    edit: I dunno what's up with the domain on that last link, I didn't even notice it until after I posted it, I'm looking into it, that's just weird.
