NetVanta Unified Communications Technical Note
Installing NetVanta UC Client Using GPO
In order to successfully install NetVanta Unified Communications (UC) Client software (including
ucCompanion click-to-dial) using Microsoft's group policy objects (GPOs), several software prerequisites
must be installed on the user's computer. These prerequisites are not automatically installed when the
NetVanta UC Client software is deployed using GPO and must be either manually installed or deployed
(using GPO) on each user's computer before installing the NetVanta UC Client software. This technical
note gives step-by-step instructions on:

How to prepare for GPO deployment of NetVanta UC Client software and its prerequisites
How to deploy NetVanta UC Client software and its prerequisites using GPO
How to deploy NetVanta UC Client software updates using GPO
Preparing NetVanta UC Client and Its Prerequisites for Deployment
The following sections describe how to extract the NetVanta UC Client software prerequisites so they can
be deployed using GPO via Microsoft Active Directory. After determining which client software
prerequisites you require for your installation, you must create directories to house each prerequisite and
download the prerequisites to the appropriate directories. Then a directory must be created to hold the
NetVanta UC Client software and the contents of the installation CD copied to that directory. Once the
directories have been created and the appropriate software extracted to them, then the NetVanta UC Client
software and its prerequisites can be deployed using GPO.
Determining Client Software Prerequisites
The client software requires several prerequisites to function properly. These prerequisites are listed in the
tables below. These prerequisites are not automatically installed by the NetVanta UC Client software
during a GPO deployment. Instructions have been included for deploying many of these prerequisites
using GPO.
The Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable (v2) prerequisites
cannot be deployed using GPO. These must be deployed using other means, such as Windows Server
Update Services (WSUS) or manual installation. WSUS can be downloaded at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/. For more information, refer to Introduction to Deploying
Windows Server Update Services 3.0 and a Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Started with
Microsoft Windows Server Update Services 3.0 available online at http://technet.microsoft.com.

All of the NetVanta UC Client Software prerequisites (except the Microsoft .NET
Framework 4.0) are available on the NetVanta UC Client installation CD. Additionally,
all of the NetVanta UC Client software prerequisites are available for download at
www.microsoft.com/downloads.
Creating Directories for NetVanta UC Client Prerequisites
In order to deploy the prerequisites you require for GPO deployment of NetVanta UC Client software, you
must create directories to house each prerequisite and the files that will be extracted. To create the required
directories, follow these steps:
1. Create a new folder on a local drive of your computer called client_gpo.
2. In the client_gpo folder you created in Step 1, create new folders to house each of the prerequisite
executable (.exe) files and the files that will later be extracted from them. Name the folders according
to the naming conventions outlined in the table below. Refer to Determining Client Software
Prerequisites on page 1 to determine which prerequisites you will require for GPO deployment of the
client software.
3. In the client_gpo folder, create a new folder called MSIs. The path to this new folder should resemble
C:\client_gpo\MSIs. Using the steps in the proceeding sections, the .exe file of each prerequisite will

Downloading and Extracting the Prerequisites for GPO Deployment
In order to deploy the NetVanta UC Client prerequisites using GPO, the prerequisite .exe file must be
downloaded and extracted. Extracting each .exe file allows access to the Windows Microsoft Installer
(MSI) files needed for deploying files using GPO. To download and extract the software prerequisites to
their appropriate directories, follow these steps:
1. Download the prerequisites you need to deploy to their respective folders. Refer to Determining Client
Software Prerequisites on page 1 to determine the file names of the prerequisites you require for GPO
deployment of the client software. These files will be in .exe format and must be extracted to access the
MSI file that will be used to deploy the software via GPO.
2. On the taskbar, navigate to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt to open a Windows
command prompt.
3. At the prompt, enter the letter of the drive on which you created the client_gpo folder in Step 1 followed
by a colon. For example, if you created the client_gpo folder on the C drive (for example,
C:\client_gpo), enter:
H:\>C:
4. Extract the prerequisite executable files using the steps outlined in the following sections.
5. Once all the prerequisite software has been extracted to the appropriate folders, proceed to Copying the
NetVanta UC Client Software to a Shared Directory on page 8.

To extract the Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System Version 3.0 Runtime Service Pack 1 to
the folder created in Step 3 of Creating Directories for NetVanta UC Client Prerequisites on page 2, follow
these steps:
1. Use the CD command to change the directory to the folder in which you downloaded the prerequisite.
Type CD followed by the path of the directory and press Enter. For example, if you downloaded the

Copying the NetVanta UC Client Software to a Shared Directory
To create a directory and download the NetVanta UC Client software, follow these steps:
1. Create a directory on your local computer and copy the content of the installation CD to that directory.
This folder can be the same folder that you use to deploy the NetVanta UC Client software prerequisites.
2. Share the directory you created with the users or groups to whom you want to distribute the client
software. You must have Domain Admin access rights or full rights to the Organizational Unit (OU) for
which you want to distribute the software.
3. Once the NetVanta UC Client software is copied to an appropriate directory and its prerequisites have
been extracted to their respective directories, you are ready to deploy them using GPO. Proceed to
Deploying NetVanta UC Client and Its Prerequisites Using GPO on page 8 for instructions.
Deploying NetVanta UC Client and Its Prerequisites Using GPO
NetVanta UC Client and its prerequisites can be deployed using GPO in Windows Server 2008 and earlier
Windows Server environments. The following sections outline how NetVanta UC Client and its
prerequisites are deployed in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003.
The network location for both the scripts (.bat files) and the MSI files must be a shared
folder containing the packages to be installed. Administrators must have Full Control of
this software distribution point, and users must have Read permission.
Deploying NetVanta UC Client and Its Prerequisites in Windows Server 2008
To deploy NetVanta UC Client software and its prerequisites using GPO in Windows Server 2008, follow
these steps:
1. Select Start on the Microsoft Windows taskbar. From the Start menu, select Run. The Run dialog box
will open.
2. In the Open field, enter mmc, and select OK. Microsoft Management Console will open in a new
window.

Computer Configuration is used to set policies that are applied to the computer,
regardless of who logs on to the computer. When you apply the GPO to a specific OU,
you will need to ensure that the particular computer is in the intended OU container. 
User Configuration is used to set policies that are applied to users, regardless of the
computer the user logs on. When you apply the GPO to a specific OU, you will need to
ensure that the particular users are in that OU container. Also, the target user (where
the GPO will be applied) must be in the local administrator's group.

regardless of who logs on to the computer. When you apply the GPO to a specific OU,
you will need to ensure that the particular computer is in the intended OU container. 
User Configuration is used to set policies that are applied to users, regardless of the
computer the user logs on. When you apply the GPO to a specific OU, you will need to
ensure that the particular users are in that OU container. Also, the target user (where
the GPO will be applied) must be in the local administrator's group.
