Sytem Mangement Server windows 2000 clients wont connect to server

    I have a bunch of Windows 2000 clients that won't connect to my System MAnagement Server. We have 2 domains with a trust between them. Where can I look to figure out why they won't connect? I installed the clients on them manually with no viewable errors.

c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs  <-- can find a bunch of logs relating to the client...

Do you have the client ASSIGNED to a Site?  This is the three letter site code for your site... is this set in the client machine?

Are other client machines working in SMS?

Maybe you just need to refresh your All systems collection?  The SMs Administrator Console needs to be periodically refreshed to show newly installed clients....

Open the SMS Administrator Console.  Expand the COLLECTIONS.  Expand the ALL SYSTEMS Collection.  Right click the ALL SYSTEMS collection --> ALL TASKS --> UPDATE COLLECTION MEMBERSHIP.  (This will scan and look for new clients...)

Then Right click the ALL SYSTEMS collection and choose REFRESH from the drop down box.  You will now see a current list of SMS clients and detected devices.





To verify that the client is working properly, you can look at the Systems Management icon on the client.,...

Click the COMPENTs tab....  if there are some componens shown as ENABLED, your client is talking to the SMS Site....  


if all of the components show INSTALLED, then your client is NOT talking to the SMS Site server.....
