I am trying to build a GPO to deploy SCCM to any new boxes to the domain, however doing this will cause some heartache with reapplication of the GPO stack...I am trying to do a WMI Filter for the Win32_Services filter but i am coming back with NULL which kills the GPO...also did a CM_Datafile one and NULL also...

so I guess how to tell it to install if something is not present...

You don't need to configure GPO to deploy client, you can utilize client push feature of SCCM

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632380.aspx

Here is the details of how to deploy using gpo

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632469.aspx

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680980.aspx

or use this startup script

Dim strComputer
Dim WshShell
Dim strQuery
Dim objWinsvc

strComputer = "."
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strQuery="SELECT * from Win32_service"
Set objWinsvc=GetObject("WinMgmts://" & strComputer & "/root/cimv2").ExecQuery(strQuery)

clientInstalled=0
for each objSvc in objWinsvc
    strlst= objSvc.caption
    if strlst = "SMS Agent Host" then
      clientInstalled=1
     end if
   
 Next
 
 if clientInstalled=1 then
    wscript.echo "Client already installed"
    wscript.quit
 
 else
 
  wshshell.run("\\sccmserver\smsclient\ccmssetup.exe")
 
 end if

Yes the script will run with systems credentials when applied to computer policy section of the group policy, make sure smsclient share on sccm server has atleast read permission for everyone or authenticated users.
