You can centrally upgrade workstations to the latest version of Offline Password Reset by assigning the software for deployment using Windows Group Policy. It is recommended to remove the existing MSI package from the Software installation list, and then assign the latest-version package.
Remove the assigned package (Quest One Offline Password Reset x86.msi or Quest One Offline Password Reset x64.msi) from the list of software to be installed.
You uninstall Offline Password Reset from end-user computers by removing the appropriate installation packages assigned through Group Policy. Uninstalling Offline Password Reset makes the Self-Service site no longer available from the Windows logon screen.
Then, add the latest-version MSI packages to the list of software to be installed to a new GPO for the new version.
To configure and deploy the Secure Password Extension on end-user computers, do the following:
When upgrading Offline Password Reset, do not forget to upgrade the prm_gina.adm(x) administrative template with the one located in the \Password Manager\Setup\Administrative Template\ folder of the installation CD.
The prm_gina.adm administrative template file is located in the \Password Manager\Setup\Administrative Template\ folder of the installation CD. Before using the file, copy it from the installation CD. The recommended target location is the \inf subfolder of the Windows folder on a domain controller.
The prm_gina.admx administrative template file is located in the \Password Manager\Setup\Administrative Template\ folder of the installation CD. This administrative template is designed to be used with Windows Server 2008 R2 and later operating systems. Before using this administrative template, copy the prm_gina.admx and prm_gina.adml files from the installation CD to the following locations: %systemroot%\policyDefinitions (for the prm_gina.admx file) and %systemroot%\policyDefinitions\En-US (for the prm_gina.adml file).
