In this article you learn how to deploy TeamViewer using Windows Group policy in two steps.
The first step would be to design a customize TeamViewer Host with your own branding, including logo and text within your Company profile.
Visit the Design & Deploy within the TeamViewer Management Console to setup your customizations of the Host module.
After you created the Host customizations a ConfigurationID will be generated.
To deploy the TeamViewer Host with your customizations, simply extend the file name of the TeamViewer_Host.msi with -idc and append the ConfigurationID to it.
Set the new filename within your group policy as software package.
Filename example: ConfigurationID: hcl79ca
Original filename: TeamViewer_Host.msi
Resulting filename: TeamViewer_Host-idchcl79ca.msi
Note: Please make sure not to miss the -idc prior to the ConfigurationID and also modify your Group Policy to match with the new file name.
The Group Policy can be set up as follows:
You have to create a network share that is accessible from all computers where you want TeamViewer to be installed. Place the required TeamViewer files on this network share, create a Group Policy Object and link it to your domain or an organizational unit.
Add your TeamViewer MSI package as a software installation package to this GPO.
Hint: In order to prevent the assignment confirmation from showing up, the automated account assignment will have to be added with the Active Directory via a service connection point. This will prevent each user having to manually confirm the assignment when TeamViewer first starts after deployment.
To create a SCP via the TrustConfigID.ps1 script, follow these steps:
The default name will be TeamViewer, if no name is provided. The default path will be CN=System, DC=domain, DC=com, if no path is provided.
In order to deploy TeamViewer with predefined settings and also a Password for unattended access which is required for the Host, the password needs to be exported in the TeamViewer_Settings.reg file.
This can be done from an installed TeamViewer, via Extras --> Options --> Advanced then select Export options to *.reg file at the bottom of the list.
After you have selected the name of the file TeamViewer_Settings and saved it to the same folder where the MSI package was stored, you will be able to enter the Password in the panel.
