Forwarder install failing using MST through group policy


Hello all,

I'm running into an issue with installing the universal forwarder on my clients through group policy. I've attempted multiple ways with no success. Now, I've decided to use Orca to create a MST with our desired property values and push this through software installation in group policy.

I've read about the 2 advanced options, "Ignore the language when deploying and include OLE class & product info" and have made sure to have those checked under the advanced deployment options for the MSI. I run a gpupdate on the client and it says there is an install from group policy that requires a restart to install. I type y or yes and allow the restart, but when I log back in... NOTHING.

Something is hanging up and I'm not sure what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
