Deploy ConfigMgr2012 Client GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I haven't deployed ConfigMgr Client via GPO before. I would deeply appreciate a guide for "dummies"! Here is the environment: 

    ConfigMgr2012

    AD is extended

    Site is published to AD

    SUP role is NOT added, WSUS is running from another central location

    Should I use the ConfigMgrADMTemplates from Tools or?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    - first create a shared folder CCM_Client and copy CCMSetup.msi from <ConfigMgr installation directory>\bin\i386 (share permissions - Authenticated Users - Read)

    - create a GPO linked to OU where computer objects are, edit -> computer configuration -> policies -> software settings -> software installation -> New package, add NETWORK PATH to msi on above defined share, define it as Assigned (you can define in Advanced after you have added to ignore languages and architecture Win64 machines)



    That is the shortest way, force refresh on macine in OU where new policiy is linked to with: gpupdate /force

    If it detects new GPO installation it should ask for restart! After restart you can check if the setup is happening in folder %WINDIR%\ccmsetup

  • Hi,

    Just to add, I normally recommend using Jason Sandys great startup script to install the SCCM Client using a Group policy as it is much more flexible and feature rich.

  • When you create boundaries (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427326.aspx) you should create site assignment boundary - devices will be assigned to site when they are discovered - you should also configure discovery methods - al least AD devices - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427340.aspx.
