Client Remediation - How to Deploy SCCM client into multiple Machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've found there're lot of client machines in which SCCM client is not installed. Want to push client on all online machines (using client push method from SCCM console) in a one go... is there any method available.?

    So far we separated all those machines which are online over the network using a ping script, now target is to push client on all these online machines using client push method in a one go. Do we've any technique available so that we can save the time.

  • You could create a collection of all devices with no Configuration Manager client. Enable client push on the server. Add the relevant client push account with whatever installation properties, cache size you want. Then right click the collection - Install client.

    No need to work out which are on and off, the client push from the server will retry ones that failed. I think a push lasts for 7 days but might be totally wrong on this part.

    Here is a query to build the collection.

    select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where (SMS_R_System.Client is null or SMS_R_System.Client = 0) and SMS_R_System.Name != 'Unknown'

  • ClientPushGenerator.exe can use input files and initiate a client push then.
