Distributing Software Packages RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am loving SCCM...it is a cool product.

    This question is not an error but more like i need an explanation.

    In the process of distributing software to client, when the packages has been advertisement and the client gets the package, i would like to know "who" handles the installation of the product.....is it the client or the OS

    Please i need a comprehensive explanation of this process....i want to know if it is the agent that controls the installation of the product on the client system.

  • Hi,

    The installation is started by the Execution Manager Component. The component is part of the Configuration Manager client. But it's the OS that "controls" the installation. Check the exmgr.log file on the client and you will se all the details.
