I am having a difficult time trying to get the client installed on XP machines that have an older client on them. I know I am overlooking something, I just can't seem to see it.

I am running SCCM 2012 SP1

Here is some detailed information from one of the client machines

Windows XP SP3 (it did have the SCCM 2007 client installed and was pointing to a different site that was no longer in use)

This is the info I have after SCCM 2012 deployed the new clients


Shows the Version as: 5.00.7804.100

Client cert: None
Connection Type: Unknown
Site Code is empty

Network is empty

Actions only has:

Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle

User Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle

I even tried to manually install the client with: "\\zeus.gwusd.org\SMS_Z01\Client\ccmsetup.exe"
/mp:Zeus.gwusd.org SMSSITECODE=Z01 SMSSLP=Zeus.gwusd.org SMSMP=Zeus.gwusd.org

Ccmsetup.exe ran for 30 minutes, but the settings were the same.

I attached both the ccmsetup.log and the client.msi.log

It took me a bit (and a lot of searching) but I finally figured out what was causing the problem.

Turns out a large number or old XP machines in the District at one point was a test run for SCCM 2007, when trying to install the new client a registry setting was not being modified and prevented the installation to point the client to the right site code.

The registry key I needed to remove was;

I pushed the client after scripting and deploying the reg change, now I see and manage the clients :)
