While working on P2, it provides a pull mechanism in terms of installation.

Is there any push mechanism for installation on multi user machines?

e.g. If a network administrator want's to install an eclipse based application on multiple client machines

You should have a look at the Eclipse Provisioning RCP Agent : http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Admin_UI_Users_Guide

I started testing the tool and it is possible to manage multiple profiles with this tool. This means I can install and update those profiles without running my RCP applications itself. So this is definitly some kind of push mechanism which you're looking for. But I just tested it locally with different directories and I didn't test it in a real multi user enviroment.
