How do you update the retro client when the machines aren’t logged in with admin accounts?

Recommended Posts

Is the recommended way to use group policy? If so is there some instructions on how to do this? We have a Windows domain running windows 7 clients with the users logged in with standard non-admin accounts so it appears Retrospect won’t be able to update the clients.


I’m running Retrospect multi-server 10.5 on Windows Server


Also got a number of Macs connected to the same domain with the same problem.

Do you have a method to deliver MSI's to your boxes? I use PDQ Deploy and just write a script to install the MSI silently, ie:


msiexec.exe /i "Retrospect Client 11.5.msk" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log RebootYesNo=NO


That installs the newest client and restarts the service regardless of who logs in (obviously you deliver it w/admin account).


Macs don't require admin - you can just do that from the client itself in Retrospect, though you could do a similar push thing w/ARD or something like Munki.
