Manual install of client (from a Proxy MP) ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Primary site (Site Code PPR) and several secondary sites underneath it.  The secondary sites act as a DP and proxy MP.  We have a few PC's at secondary sites not installing the SCCM client, and we must do it maually.  Whats the best way to do this?

    I was thinking of having the staff navigate to the secondary site server>SMS_XXX(theri secondary site code>Client folder and mamually clicking on ccmsetup.exe. Will this work?

    1.  Or should I have them navigate to the primary site server and run ccmsetup from the primary's SITE_PPR>Client folder?   When this is done, will it set the primary site code PPR, Managment Point and then the Cache size or must this be done manually? 

    2.  Or dow we need to d/l the client files to the local PC instead of just doubleclicking the CCMSETUP file off the server?

  • The parameters will be read from AD if you do not specify any parameter. Otherwise you have to provide them in the command line.

  • Check the commandlines - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680980.aspx you can use /mp to specify the MP or /source to specify the source files

  • We specified the the MP= XXXX server and cache in the Client Push options on the primary server.  If they copy down the CCM setup from SITE_PPR>Client, will it also copy down these settings?  Or if its a manual install it must include the MP, Cache settings manually as switches on the CMD line?

  • Manually run 

    \\server\SMS_xxx\Client\ccmsetup.exe SMSSITECODE=xxx

    where xxx is your primary site code. Also consider including FSP= and PATCH=
