Running batch file to install SCCM client on remote machines

sdcr asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I am trying to manually install the SCCM client on remote machines (can't do it through the SCCM console, I've tried). I've made the batch file listed below; it runs fine under the local administrator account, but does not run when a normal user is logged in. I've tried running this remotely through the command line using psexec, but am not having luck with it either.

It would be nice to be able to run this batch file remotely, silently, so I don't have to log off any users, etc. Best case is that I can run it through psexec using a .txt file with all of the computers that need it.

Maybe a .vbs file would work better?

I am open to any ideas on how to execute this process.

net use o: \\servername password /user:domain\username
start /min O:\CLIENT\ccmsetup.exe /useronly /mp:"sccmserver" /downloadtimeout:30 SMSSITECODE="A02" SMSCACHEDIR=C:\WINDOWS\system32\CCM\Temp SMSCACHESIZE=2048
