Automatic Client Push WES 7 clients RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When clients are discovered in SCCM, normally the sccm client is automatically installed on XP/W7/2003/2008 etc. This is working fine.

    But when a Windows Embedded 7 thin client is discovered the client isn't installed automatically. When I right click the computer and choose to deploy the client, it installs without a problem.

    Can someone explain this? Thanks.

  • I wonder if the architecture/chassis of the hardware is not being detected as a 'workstation' and therefore the automatic client push leaves it alone (akin to the option for installing or not onto 'Servers')

  • When I look at the properties of a client it states:

    Client type: Computer

  • By which discovery method are the Windows Embedded Systems being discovered? Take a look at the properties of a non-client Windows Embedded System - does it have an Operating System Name and Version attribute?  I'm not 100% sure which attributes the automatic client push mechanism uses to decide if a discovered resource is a workstation or server - but perhaps this is having problems with these devices?

  • The OS version is Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 6.1 (embedded)

    The devices are discovered bij AD discovery.

    Maybe you're right and embedded systems aren't auto push enabled.
