Adding workgroup clients in sccm 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario :-

    1.I have an AD enviroment.

    2.I have installed SCCM 2012 and Set boundaries to default AD Site + IP range(My Domain as well as Workgroup computers are under this IP range).

    3.My sccm client are installed on all the Domain Computers but no workgroup client are shown in SCCM console yet.(not installed on workgroup computers)

    4.I have used this command on client machine "CCMSETUP.EXE FSP=kbinsccm.kbin.com SMSMP=kbinsccm.kbin.com SMSSLP= kbinsccm.kbin.com SMSCACHESIZE=1000 CCMLOGMAXHISTORY=2 SMSSITECODE=BWL  CMCERTSEL=kbin.com".After running this command i have got workgroup client in sccm console as yes status...but the action tab under Client Configuration Manager  shows only two cycles instead of showing all the cycles.

    5.Also i am unable to deploy software on the workgroup clients.

    What should i do to install SCCM Client on workgroup machines successfully?

  • Hi,

    Have you approved the client? The default setting for client approval are to automatically approve clients int trusted domains and as a workgroup client is not in a trusted domain you would have to approve it manually or change the site settting to "automatically approve all clients".

    A side note if you change that setting now, you will still have to approve all clients that already have reported to the site.

  • Hi,

    Yes, there is an extra column you can add that shows the approved state called "Approved" which you can add in the devices view. You can also right-click on the compouter and if you can select Approve then it is not approved.

  • My domain Computers are showing Approved = 1

    My workgroup Client shows Approved = 0

    I have right clicked it and approved it..Now should i wait for sometime to check for all the cycles to come in the console?

  • you may need to set your WSUS URL in the registry of those workgroup computers.

    for example : http://wsuscorp.company.com:8530

    The ConfigMgr client should take care of that automatically. It will create a local policy.
