Understanding Install Client

    Question

  • I have a collection that has all my machines that do not have clients installed and am using the "Right Click -> Install Client" on the collection but it does not seem to be working as expected.

    I have 300 machines in this collection and the total does not seem to go down.

    If I install the client in this way will it keep retrying or will I have to keep coming back trying to catch the machines when they are on?

  • It will keep trying for 7 days.  Check the ccm.log file to see if they can talk.  Make sure you don't have a unc path block, wmi or other port/access issues to the remote machines.

  • Hi Sevengs,

    Client Push Installation needs to meet the following things.

    1. At least one Client Push Installation account must be defined in the Accounts tab of the Client Push Installation Properties dialog box. This account must be a member of the local Administrators group.

    2. The computer to which you are targeting the client installation must have been discovered by at least one Configuration Manager 2007 discovery method.

    3. The computer has an ADMIN$ share and can be connected by the SCCM server with the account used for Client push installation (You can check if you can access \\<Clientname>\ADMIN$ from the SCCM server)

    There is no DNS issue between the server and clients.

    Firewall is not blocking the SMB traffic

    Account Specified for the client push is correct and has permission to connect to the share.

    4. The WMI connection also should be available for the SCCM server to the client with the account used for Client push installation (You can use WbemTest and try connecting to \\<Clientname>\root\cimv2 and make sure you are able to remotely connect to client WMI)

    Check the properties of the WMI and make sure remote connectivity is allowed

    Make sure the RPC port 135 and the Dynamic port range are opened in any firewall between the client and the server, and the windows firewall.

    Also ,I recommend you check the log file ccmsetup.log
