SCCM 2007 R3 Issue

Hey guys,

I have setup sccm 2007 as per
It was a great help but now I cannot install the client on the workstations and cant even get the machines to show up under the collections container.  I have made sure that the workstations are on and webdav is installed correctly.  I even have turned off the firewall.  What else do I need to look at?
I have copied the ccm log file below so someone might be able to offer some advice.

You have to configure a Discovery Method. If the workstation are in a domain, i preferr the Active Directory System Discovery.
You configure that under Site Database --> Site Management --> Site Name --> Site Setting--> Discovery Methods.
In the Discovery Method Properties check the check box at the schedule tab. That will update the collection Membership as soon as possible.

After that configure a Client Push Account under the Client Push Installation Properties that have administrative rights on the workstation and enable the Client Push.

Under the Client Agent Tab, under Computer Client Agent define a Network Access Account to Access the share silently.

Now your Installation via Client Push will work fine
