using SCCM 2012 in a LAB - Part 4. Configuring Client Settings and adding roles



Recommended Posts

In Firewall Ports used during client push installation.

Note: we will use the ClientInstall account to install the configmgr client on our computers, make sure that this account is a local administrator on your target computers.

In Administration, click on Site Configuration, Sites, select our site, in the ribbon above click on Settings, it will open a new menu, from that menu select Client Installation Settings and from there select Client Push Installation.

On the general screen, place a checkmark in Enable Automatic site-wide client push installation

general tab client push.png

Click on the Accounts tab, and select the yellow star, choose New Account

type in (or browse to select the AD user) the Client Push account, use our ClientInstall account which we created in Active Directory in Part 1.

Note the Verify button, this is new since Beta 2 and allows you to verify that the credentials can connect to your network resources, if you get your password wrong it will tell you !

Click on Verify and type in a Unc path to check.

Click Ok.

Click on Assets and Compliance and expand Devices, All Systems, you should see that our SCCM server has a client installed but our Domain Controller does not.

Note: If the site server cannot contact the client computer or start the setup process, it automatically repeats the installation attempt every hour for up to 7 days until it succeeds.

You can wait until Client push installs the client or manually install it right now by Right clicking on the Domain Controller and choose Install Client.

set the Installation Options

click next through the wizard, close. Meanwhile, on the DC (AD1-Domain Controller) check task manager, and you'll see ccmsetup starting...success

after some minutes the client is installed and you can refresh the view, you'll notice is says Client=Yes on both our systems in the Lab and there are new tabs to look at since beta 2 on the bottom of the screen. We'll get to them in a later post.

On your AD computer you can start Software Center

click on Find applications from the application catalog

and your Application Catalog will pop up in Green !

When I click on the find applications from the app catalog I get a prompt to enter a username and password? Why is that?

 

Hey mate, I encountered the same issue and after a little research this is a 'by design' result of the browser. Using IE, add the server FQDN of the Application Catalog service to the local intranet zone.

 

Following the above guide, you would add "sccm.server2008r2.lab.local" to the local intranet zone in IE.

I would assume that that is what the trusted zones drop down is supposed to make work - but as shown to date the prompt for credentials pops up - even when the trused zones is populated with the sccm server. Being RC software might mean that this may be resolved in the RTM release.

 

As mentioned previously, by adding to the Local Intranet site alleviates the problem. This setting could easily be added into a group policy which populates this zone for all domain members (or a subset of depending on how your environment is configured).

I have a problem my Application Catalog IE says Error 404 File or directory not found ! ! can you help me thanks ! !

 

I hade the same issue, but got it sorted out after reading the logs. You probably installed the .NET 4 before IIS was configured so there is the problem. to fix it;

 

1. Remove both of the Application Catalog roles

2. Run :%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe –iru

3. Install both of the Application Catalog roles again

 

Then the page will show up as it should.

1) - make sure the user account clientinstall (or whatever account you're using) has permissions to install software on the target machine otherwise it won't work.

 

2) - Ensure that the WCF Activation feature is installed and HTTP Activation is enabled. You can set this up on the SCCM Server via Server Manager, Features, Add Features, Extend .net framework and ensure WCF Activation is selected.

and make sure you've got your site assigned in the boundary group, check Heirarchy Configuration, Boundary Groups, and click on the references tab, is your site assigned ?

Here is my problem.

 

I can push the client out to a PC but SCCM doesn't report the client installed. When I go to the CCMSetup Log on the PC it shows return code 0 which means successful install.

 

What gives? What did I do wrong here?

I am having the same issue. It appears that the client is installed. However in the Config Manager it still says Client = No. When i try to open the Software Center on the client machine i get the popup: "Software Center can not be loaded. There is a problem loading the required components for Software Center. You can try launching Software Center at a later time. If the problem continues, you can contact your helpdesk.

I had better luck by setting the intranet zone instead of the trusted sites zone on a "hardened" IE setup.

 

Windows Server since 2003 has this hardened mode for Internet Explorer that disables the majority of scripting and add-ons if you're foolhardy enough to go web surfing on your production server. IE8 and IE9 have stricter controls on "Trusted Sites" than previous versions; they're closer to the "Internet Zone" settings from IE6.

 

To make Application Center work I instead added my AD domain (*.example.com) to my Intranet Zone using Group Policy, rather than use the "Add site to Trusted Sites" switch. This works for any other local web servers, even non-Microsoft ones, that require scripting, pop-ups and so on to work.

Yes, sorry for not writing, I have done every step in this manual just like you described. As I see in the log it is trying to update the old one. So I should manually uninstall the old one? Is there anyway sccm 2012 could do that for me?

are you trying to install the client on production computers ? this is a Release Candidate software, not for production,

you can uninstall the old sms client using ccmsetup.exe /uninstall

 

then try again

The SC 2012 client won't install on Windows Server 2003 unless BITS 2.5 is installed first. It also appears BITS 2.5 isn't available on Windows Update or the Update Catalog to push out using WSUS, so I had to push it out by hand.

Fortunately we're not deploying any new 2003 servers.

hello again,

i am trying to do all this with secondary sites.

i have configured client push in my secondary site, however, the secondary site server never tries to install the client. (at least nothing i can see in the logs)

i have correctly configured management points and boundary groups for the secondary site server.

 

do we need to enable client push at the primary site? is it even possible to enable it only on the secondary site?

 

for some reason it took just a full day to get things rolling. i have changed nothing, but now everything is installed as excpected. manually uninstalling and "system rediscover" triggers a fresh install on the secondary site server. good!

 

edit: in the secondary sites "client push installation properties" i can specify "installation properties.

SMSSITECODE=xxx

should i set this to the code of the primary site, or to the secondary site?

 

help appreciated...

i have tested this intensively. it must be the primary site code, like in sccm2007. specifying the secondary site code will make the clients install, but then not show up as "installed client" in the devices list.

 

cheers

Seems I failed in below step,

Click on Assets and Compliance and expand Devices, All Systems, you should see that our SCCM server has a client installed but our Domain Controller does not. Right click on the Domain Controller and choose Install Client.

 

on the DC ,when I check task manager, no ccmsetup starting...

Would you please help me to solve the problem?
