16: Does Application Manager need to be installed on Domain Controller (DC)?
No. Therefore, PolicyPak Application Manager is NOT installed on DCs.
Let’s do a quick run through of the components of PolicyPak and where they’re installed:
- PolicyPak Admin Console MSI: Install this on YOUR management station, usually Windows 7. As a rule of thumb, install this anywhere you have and use the GPMC regularly.
- PolicyPak CSE MSI: Install this on the machines you want to manage using PolicyPak Application Manager. Usually end-user computers, Citrix / TS machines, or anything that users actually log on to or use.
- PolicyPak Paks: These are COPIED in one of three places:
So, nothing is EVER installed on DCs. And nothing is ever “running” on DCs.
