  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I wanna know what happens if ccmsetup.exe is double clicked? I read an article recently but i missed it :(

    I remember it contacts MP, AD, DNS and DHCP - please correct me if im wrong.

    Could anyone share me some more details about its workflow :)

    Thanks,

  • It doesn't connect to DHCP nor DNS.

  • ccmsetup.exe will be executed then. See ccmsetup.log to get details.

  • yeah I was monitoring them, from then I got this question.

    1. On a machine in a main domain, it directly understands or pulls information about its own MP. Once MP is assigned, that's it all other works are automatic. - please correct me if im wrong

    2. On another machine which resides on some other site, where there is a proxy MP installed, ccmsetup.exe was unable to pull information about MP so I have to manually provide MP name (main domain) while triggering the installation. Even after that it was not able to pull the sitecode information which inturn implies that boundary issues. I verified the machine was under the site and we have configured the boundary by sites.

    The weird thing for the 2nd one is, once I double clicked CCMSETUP.exe , it was contacting AD for MP information, failed. Then started trying some roaming boundary information and again failed and CCMSETUP exited.

    Could anyone explain the flow!

    Thanks,

  • after you run ccmsetup.exe,you can see all things inside in ccmsetup.log about querying Domain for the site version etc..take a look at this article explaining about mobileclient.rtf and its role while doing ccmsetup.  http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2008/05/11/inside-the-configmgr-2007-mobileclient-tcf-file.aspx
