    Hi everyone,

    This is my first IT job with 0 training so if theres a ovbious solution i will not have seen it haha

    We have a network of 80 pc’s with 5 branches and we currently use WSUS

    our wan links are slow and i would like to start maintaining 3rd party (adobe reader, shittyl little apps the office managers want people using et.c.) apps.

    before i started here there was nothing, you would see XP SP2 machines with adobe reader 8 e.t.c. since implementing wsus it has gotten better but its still hard to manage software versions.

    As we are still small i was thinking i could either do SCE, or do it via GPO if its not too tedious, or even just distribute cd’s every 1/4 with a batch script and the latest version of applications.

    Should the software initially be deployed by GPO or is it fine to just do it using wsus, i figure i wont be able to remove it using GP but then again its just stuff like reader…
