manually force a client installation retry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm just wondering if there's a way to manually force a retry of a SCCM 2012 client install. Usually the ccm.log on the server gives a failed message and then says 'sleeping for 900 seconds'. If I've made a change to the client machine how can I manually force the retry rather than wait 900 seconds?

  • Hi,

    If you can restart services remote on that computer using computer management for instance you can restart the service called "ccmsetup", then it will try again.

  • Well, ccmsetup doesn't exist on the client machine as it wasn't contactable from SCCM, it then went into sleep mode and while in sleep mode I made a change on the client machine so that SCCM could see it.

  • ConfigMgr retries automatically once per hour. You can initiate a new manual client push to speed things up.

  • Ok, so just right-click on the device in the console and click install client again. That's what I thought but imagined there would be another way.
