I have a batch file that I run from my server to establish communication with Symantec System Center on a different server within the same domain. The batch file works when run from a desktop with local admin rights (the computer shows up in the Symantec System Center), but users can't run it since they don't have local admin rights. I put the .bat file in the same folder as our login scripts and then ran gpupdate but it didn't seem to work after my users restarted. Only the ones I've run show up in System Center. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try running the file as an immediate task on all your computers. That way you can control the rights that the batch file runs under.

Edit a GPO and navigate to Computer Configuration > Preferences > Control Panel Settings > Scheduled task.

Right click and select New > Immediate Task.

Be sure to set the RUN AS account as a domain account which has the needed rights to install the software.
