Here's one for the group:

I thought that by using an "Assigned" computer
installation, the package would be 'self healing'... i.e.
Office 2003. The GPO is configured w/ the pro.msi and a
custom MST file... seems to install fine. Then for some
reason, the user removes a part of the software, like
Excel or the whole thing for that matter. Shouldn't the
gpo 'heal' the computer and reinstall Office?

On a somewhat related note, is there a way to re-deploy a
package that was deployed via GPO?


Thanks everyone :)

On your second question, yes, right click on the packae in your GPO and you
will find an option to re-deploy.
