SCCM2012 Client Cannot be installed on some computers

Posted on 2014-08-06

I have installed SCCM 2012 and configured it to push the client, it did not work.
I did some troubleshooting, I found out one  computer that had one firewall option enabled, then I disabled it , and redeployed the client manually and it gets installed with success.
However Other computers they have firewall disabled, but I still cannot get the client deployed with success.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

    Hey jskfan,

    So they do install on some machines meaning the process itself is working?
    The account that you are using to install the client, is that one admin on all of those machines? Are you able to ping the machines? And also do keep in mind that SCCM heavily relies on Dynamic DNS, so is the name resolution actually working correctly?

    Maybe because the sccm tried to install multiple time and didn't success, right click on collection and click install agent, then join a new computer to domain and wait until discovered and agent installed.

    Also check C:\Windows\CCMSetup folder if it's available, if available and client didn't install, please send CCMSETUP.LOG file and CLIENT.LOG file

    Also make sure that you configured boundaries and boundaries group. You need to configure boundaries (IP and AD Site)  and assign it to site from boundaries group

    I do not know what happened , but now I can see all the Agents have been pushed...
    I am not sure which one fixed it....Yesterday I did the following Tasks:

    - Created System Management container on ADSIEDIT and gave the SCCM server full control (This might be the one that fixed it)
    -I installed fallback status role (I do not think this will fix it)

    Anyway it took too long to see that the clients agent were pushed, it is hard to tell which button I have pushed in order to get the issue resolved.

    System management container is required and must be configured, if it was not configured u may face issues with MP and clients will have issue too, because it will not be able to find MP from AD.
