Install SCCM client on gold image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I want to install SCCM client on gold image. I found this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb694095.aspx but it's for 2007 and i have 2012R2. I'm not sure if it can apply to this version. I have only one site so i still need to don't assign the client? Should the gold image be a stand alone machine or can be joined to the domain?

  • Are you deploying out the gold image via SCCM 2012? If so why install the client onto a master?

    If you need to do this then the two steps should be supplemented with removing the SMSCFG.ini file from the c:\windows folder.

  • The same path can be followed for 2007 as for SCCM 2012R2.

    Personnally I won't do that like this knowing that the client installation is pretty fast and so I would rather push it via Group Policy with a startup script. It's what we do at my work and it works perfectly...

    Make your task sequence for your OSD and then let the group policies do their job ;-)

  • Hello. Here the article for SCCM 2012R2 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712298.aspx - How to Install Configuration Manager Clients by Using Computer Imaging

    Computer must NOT be joined to the domain

  • Why not use OSD instead of templates -- templates are more or less just Ghost and thus belong in the last century: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/steverac/archive/2014/03/29/the-suite-spot-of-imaging.aspx

  • Change starts with one person with a good idea. I'd recommend you read Steve's in-depth blog post and forward it to the pointy haired folks in charge :-)
