r u sure that this client already member on the collection groub, if yes so the folder should be created, any way please check if the SCCM computer member of domain admin groups in AD, it's very important and required, without it the agent will not installed on the client.

Ok i shall explain what i did...
The client machine is part of the domain.
Added the SCCm server into the Domain Admin's Group.
Firewall on the client is off
The server has this log
c:\windows\system32\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.log
But client it is not there
The client itself is not found on the SCCM > Console

No clients are getting discovered...
I have set the discovery interval to 2 min but no luck....
I have downloaded the files that you linked me too and installed...
Can you tell me how i can troubleshoot this situation
