How upgrade SCCM client to 1511 version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have updated SCCM to 1511 few weeks ago. First I have configured automatically upgrade task. Next, during two weeks, many of devices has been upgraded but still many hasn't been upgraded (or has been upgraded with problems).

    When I use Client Push method, it is working fine but... I prefer more automatic method. In the past, when Cumulative Updates has been installed, on Software Library-->Packages-->Configuration Manager Updates has been available upgrade packages, which I pushed to device. For 1511 version I don't see similar packages.

    I have tried create my own SCCM Client upgrade package but... when I have deployed it, device has got old version of SCCM client. So, my question is: could I ask you for step-by-step tutorial how prepare (and where find source files for 1511 client) my own package with SCCM client upgrade to 1511 version? 

    Or maybe you will tell me where I can find ready package. 

    Sorry for so noob question.... :-(

    ... so you should also post to the CM Current Branch Forums. I'll move this thread.

    The Client binaries are stored in <CM-inst-dir>\Client. That can be used to create a package, but there should be a default "Configuration Manager Client Package" - even in 1511.

    Thank you Torsten.

    Problem is - in my environment on Software Library-->Application Management-->Packages node I have few "Configuration manager client package":

    Name: Programs Manufacturer

    Configuration Manager Client Package 0 Microsoft Corporation
    Configuration Manager Client Package 0 Microsoft Corporation
    Configuration Manager Client Package 0 Microsoft Corporation
    Configuration Manager Client Update CU3 0 Microsoft
    Configuration Manager Client Upgrade 1 Microsoft
    Configuration Manager Client Upgrade 1 Microsoft
    Configuration Manager Client Upgrade New 1 Microsoft
    Configuration Manager Client Upgrade Package 1 Microsoft

  • Ok,

    I have found Configuration Manager Client Package which is in 1511 version (from list above). Problem is... "Deploy" option is grayed out. So, how I can deploy this package?

  • Is the Package distributed to the any DP(s)? Are you able to deploy other packages?

  • Mentioned package is distributed on all DP's.

    For other packages, Deploy option is available.

  • Ok, below I will describe, which method I have used to prepare my own SCCM 1511 client upgrade. Could you check and write me what I have done wrong?

    1. I have checked where is located new version of SCCM client. I found it is located on:

    \\Primary_server\SMS_VIR\Client

    2. I have copied files from thisshare to my "source" folder.

    3. I have created new package and filled fields as below:

    Command line: CCMSETUP.EXE /noservice SMSSITECODE=AUTO

    Run: normal

    Program can run: whether user is logged or not

    Drive mode: Runs with UNC name

    Unchecked "Suppress users notifications"
