Deactivate Client Agent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    how would I go about disabling the Client Agent? Just set the SMS Agent Host to disabled? Or would I need to do more? I don't want to uninstall the Client.

    Cheers,

  • I would set the SMS Agent host service to disabled and also disable the the scheduled task that runs ccmeval. Then, when you need to update the master, just enable the agent.

  • Why do you want to do that? Setting it to disabled does not work because the ccmeval task will fix that (exception: you are using the NotifyOnly option)

  • You could Block the client http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682092.aspx which would stop the client from communicating with Site Systems.

  • Hi Torsten,

    I have a XenApp Master Image in PVS. I don't want the client to be active when provisioning the image to vms that users will log on to, in order to prevent them from "installing software/updates" when it will "disappear" as soon as the system reboots - same for XenDesktop Master Image. So I thought I'd deactivate the client and just activate it in the master image, when I need to update it. I've looked around a bit, but I haven't found anything usefull on that topic yet. I guess there must be a better way as SCCM must be provisioning aware... 

    Cheers,

    Fred
