AD GPO Deployment: Enable Internet-ID by default (Custom Server)

Hello
I have a custom server and had deployed host via AD GPO (password-protected settings). Host is installed on all clients seamlessly, but there is a problem. By default, none of the hosts acquire an Internet-ID from custom server automatically. I have to right-click host icon in taskbar, click on Internet-ID connection settings, enter configuration password and click a button to get a new ID. I want this to be done by default. How can I do so?
Regards.

Hello Mohammad,

Thank you for your post.

You should enable Internet-ID generation on the Internet-ID tab of step 3 of the MSI Configuration process.

Hope that helps.

Let me clarify by previous post. I assume that you use the MSI Configurator to build/configure your custom Host installer before the deployment. If you don't,  (i.e. if you deploy the vanilla Host) won't be able to have the Internet-ID code get generated automatically, since in the vanilla Host this option is turned off by default.

Hello Conrad.
Thanks for your reply. It seems that I have missed this setting. I will check and post result. But there is a question. If I redeploy package through AD, will it replace current configuration or I will have to uninstall all instances and then redeploy? I am using online configurator if it matters.
Regards

Hello Mohammad,

If you are going to update existing installations, it all depends on what you select in the last step of the configuration process. Basically, you have three options - update everything, update everything except security settings (i.e. passwords and permissions), or skip updating settings (in which case only the program files themselves will be updated). There is a table on the page that lists all possible combinations, see the link above.

Here by "updating" I mean not only product version update, but also deploying a new package of the same version, which might be the case if you want to update Host settings on already deployed Hosts.

Hello Conrad,
Many many thanks for your helpful instructions. I did everything necessary according to your guides. Only have to wait for users to restart their systems and see the results.
Regard.
