SCCM 2007R3 - Clients have to download manually SCCM Client

Hi,

I have decided not to activate the (automatically) Push Client option to have a better
control about the client installation on the machines, when it will happen
and so on.

Well, I have chosen to do a right click on the machine (Win7) and then select Install Client.
I expected that the Client will do the installation automatically, but I checked and
see under the Control Panel, that there is a "Program Download Monitor 32bit" and
"Run Advertised Programs 32bit", where I can select "KB977384-Advanced Client Hotfix..."
entry and click on run button.

Is it possible to install the SCCM Client automatically without any action by user?
And is it possible to remove the entry after finishing of the installation? In my
case it is still possible to start the installation of the client again.

Best Regards

Yes, user interaction is not needed at all

Please check this and verify your settings

Hi npsingh123

thanks for your feedback. Could you please tell me, which windows or
setting you exactle have meant?

Well, I don't want that the client will automaticaly roll out.
I will start client installation manually but without need of support
from users site, that means that users need to enter control panel and select client
to download etc.

FYI
I don't want to enter a trap after discovery of the whole AD, that on every machine
suddenly the sccm client is being installed!

Thank you for your continuous support.

You can advertise programs with a really long deadline so that effectively the user starts the installation before the program does.

But for these tricks, the machine should already be working in an SCCM site. Client runs the program with a local admin privilege.


You can limit your System search to a small OU and push the SCCM client out.
