Pre-load Client install dependencies into ccmsetup folder... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that when you manually install the SCCM Client it starts by creating a folder named "ccmsetup" in the Windows folder that it uses to load and run the setup files. I also know that if some client dependencies are missing from the computer ccmsetup.exe will start a BITS session and download those missing dependencies. Since I know its going to do that I'm just wondering if I can speed up the process by editing my SCCM client install script to copy all the dependencies to "ccmsetup" before Io run ccmsetup.exe. Will that work? Also (assuming it does work) can anyone provide a list of dependencies to pre-load there?

  • Yes, it will work if you use the /source parameter and specify that local location. Not sure how manually copying them will speed anything up though -- they still have to be copied.
