Description

Microsoft Office 2000 is installed on the listed computers. In order to deploy security patches and updates for the Office 2000 installation on these computers, it will be necessary to choose a patch deployment method for each computer. The BigFix Enterprise Suite supports three deployment methods:
  1. Administrative Installation: This installation method requires an administrative installation point for Office 2000. More information on Administrative Installations is available here.
  2. Network Installation: This installation method requires that a shared CD drive be available to each computer to be updated. Each Office installation updated through this method will need access to the shared CD drive in order to retrieve required files for updates.
  3. Local Installation: This installation method requires that each user have an Office 2000 CD available to them. The user will be prompted during the installation to insert the CD to complete the installation.

Note: If you do not assign a deployment method to a computer, the BigFix Enterprise Suite will not report Office security vulnerabilities present on that computer. At any time, you will be able to change the deployment method you want to use for any computer by using Office "Reassignment" tasks in the BES Support Fixlet site.

To set the deployment method for other Office versions, please see the following Fixlet messages:


Important Note: The Administrative Installation and Network Installation will each require that the relevant installation media be shared through a null session share. If you are using either installation method, you must familiarize yourself with the instructions below prior to deploying Office Fixlet messages.
