I am very new to PDQ deploy and Inventory. I am looking to clean up our windows versions.
I have two projects that i am doing with PDQ...the monthly windows updates and in-place upgraded to 21h1.
When it comes to the windows updates...i have dynamic groups setup with windows versions, and i plan to deploy updates based on these groups. I noticed that the packages provided do not restart PCs after install. What do you recommend in this instance? Do you think I should edit the package to add a restart step? Or, should I use the restart required dynamic group the next day? What is the reason PDQ packages doesn't restart?
My second project...in place upgrade. I was fairly successful with a few small test deployments. However after the upgrade to 21h1, some of MS office licenses were not found, and office would not work. A quick fix was to add permissions to registry key...Hkey user\s1-5-20...for network services user. Then re activate with our license key.
Any thoughts why this broke? Is there a step i can add to that deployment to change permissions on the registry key before or after the restart to prevent this problem. I am not exactly sure where in the upgrade this breaks.
Thanks for your help!
