SCCM agent fail "metered connection not allowed" on Win10

Recommended Posts

Hi all, any known workarounds for the issue where the SCCM agent install will fail over a 4G (LTE) network connection on Windows 10?

The client fails (ccmsetup.log) with "use of metered connection not allowed" - it seems the agent is hard-coded not to work over a 4G connection.


We logged a Microsoft case but they just said it was a "Design limitation" and might be fixed in the next version of SCCM. :( We have SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU2 and Windows 10 x64 1511.


I'm hoping someone has a workaround for this issue. We have many field staff who's PCs were in-place-upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 via SCCM over 4G. The PCs are running Windows 10 fine but when the SCCM agent went to reinitialize after Windows 10 was installed, it fails.


The only idea I had was get the staff to copy the SCCM agent files, connect to WiFi disconnect from 4G and run the install (if they had admin rights it might work).
