[KB25003] Installing the PTS Plug-ins to workstations using the Active Directory group policy

You can automate the PTS plug-ins installation to workstations, for example, on enterprise-scale networks.

This section describes the procedure of mass installation of PTS plug-ins using the Active Directory group policy.

Solution

To install the PTS plug-ins using the Active Directory group policy, proceed as follows:

  1. Save the self-unpacking archive containing a distribution kit of the PTS plug-ins from the Plug-ins->Installation section of the application server web page.
  2. Extract the self-unpacking archive contents to a shared directory.
  3. Open the Group Policy Management console (Run->gpmc.msc).
  4. Create a new object of the group policy and open it for editing.
  5. In the group policy editor, select Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Scripts (Startup/Shutdown), then open the Startup Properties window.
  6. In the Script Name: box of the Add a Script window, specify the UNC path to the setup.exe file of the PTS plug-ins installer (the path looks like that: \\server_name\share_name\setup.exe).
  7. In the Script Parameters: box of the Add a Script window, set installation parameters as required:
    • /Llanguage_code (code of the interface language: 1033 – English, 1049 – Russian, 1031 - German...)
    • /S /v/qn (silent installation, no messages displayed)
    • /S /v/qb (only the progress bar is displayed during installation)
    Example:

    \\server_name\share_name\setup.exe /L1033 /S /v/qn

    PTS plug-ins will be installed silently with English as the interface language
  8. Assign the created group policy object to the appropriate enterprise department.

After the specified procedures are completed, the PTS plug-ins will be installed automatically on the department workstations that can be accessed via the network.

After you installed the PTS plug-ins, it is recommended to use the suggested method to automate the PTS plug-ins setup.
The method is described in section [KB25004] Customizing the PTS Plug-ins on workstations using the Active Directory group policy
