Client Push Method RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    I tried to install the clients using Client Push Method without "Distribution Point" and got the error message. SCCM 2012 R2 Environment 

    ccmsetup.log:

    Failed to get DP locations as the expected version from MP "Server FQDN". error 0x87d00215

    MP "Server FQDN" didnt retrurn DP locations for CLient Package with the expected version. Retrying in 30 Secs

  • You need a DP to perform client push.

    By the book, it should fall back to your MP, but I don't think that I've ever seen that happen.

    So that begs the question though, why don't you have a DP?

  • I thought to Install DP after completing Asset Management Tasks, when we go to Deployment Tasks.

    I am studying the SCCM R2 Behavior. As Per Microsoft, After Pre-Installation Tasks,  setup process uses BITS to pull the files from Site Server or MP.

    The documentation isn't necessarily a linear set of steps to perform as there are dependencies.

    Yes, I'm aware of what the documentation says which is exactly what I wrote above but as I noted, I've never seen that actually happen. And the files never come from the site server.

    Also, if you are studying ConfigMgr, you really should be using ConfigMgr CB as 2012 R2 is many years old.
