Hi Dale,
  I use a wpkg package.  I update my settings.xml file then add this to the main (all PC) profile and every wpkg is then update and pointed to the new server.

       name="WPKG Settings"
       <install architecture="x86" cmd='%PROGRAMFILES%\WPKG\wpkginst.exe --SETTINGSFILE=%SETTINGS%\settings.xml'/>

       <upgrade architecture="x86" cmd='%PROGRAMFILES%\WPKG\wpkginst.exe --SETTINGSFILE=%SETTINGS%\settings.xml'/>

       <remove cmd='%comspec% /c echo "nothing"'/>

Hi there,

My company currently deploys wpkg updates from 1 server via executable (.exe) packages. But now we’re de-commissioning that server and want to move the wpkg.js file and everything else to a new server.

What methods can I use to do this, so that all the client machines that are pointing at the old (current) server change to point to the new one? I want to avoid manual installation on all the clients. We use Active directory but I’m not aware it can do this.

Kind Regards,

Dale Goodwin
