Step 1: Make Distribution Point

Log in as the administrator and place the installer package in a shared folder on the network. Set the permissions for sharing in this step too. Then click the “Create a GPO in this domain, and link it here” showed in the right picture to set a new GPO with Windows Terminal Server.

Step 2: Setup Group Policy
