What is the best way to manually install the SCCM 2012 client from a newly deployed machine? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    90% of the time my Helpdesk team will have the luxury of being able to deploy a new computer and just wait for the SCCM client to auto install via push from the server. However there are a few cases where we need to get a laptop or desktop out the door very quickly and they want the ability to manually install the 2012 client in those cases.  Obviously I want to make sure it is correctly configured to talk to my SCCM server when such cases arise. In my mind it seems liek thsi would be as simle as having them navigate to the folowing path:

    "\\<MySCCMServerName\SMS_<MySiteName>\Client"

    and having them run "ccmsetup.exe" but is it really that simple? Are there some switches I need to run against ccmsetup.exe to make sure its properly configured for my environment? Should I run it from that path or create the "ccmsetup" folder int he Windows DIR and run it frorm there?
