Can not install SCCM 2012 R2 Linux agent

Posted on 2014-10-02
Last Modified: 2014-10-16
I downloaded the client from here:

I'm following these instructions:

When I try to install the agent I get "Archive file not found or no read permissions."

[root@server1 tmp]# ./install -mp sccm01.domain.local -sitecode SC1 ccm-Universal-x64.tar
Archive file not found or no read permissions.

The article says to tun this command:
./install –mp <hostname> -sitecode <code> ccm-Universal-x64.<build>.tar

The file i downloaded does not have a "BUILD" number.  How can i get around this problem.

I did the chmod +x on the file.

[root@server1 tmp]# ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  74844160 Oct  2 16:31 ccm-Universalx64.tar

Just remove the build number part and use ccm-Universal-x64.tar...

 ./install –mp <hostname> -sitecode <code> ccm-Universal-x64.tar

Try to re-download the complete package. What distro are you using? x86 or x64?

 ./install ccm-Universal-<architecture>.<build version>.tar -mp sccm01.domain.local -sitecode SCI

Not sure what you mean. In short you need to have the correct tar file for the distro.

I thought i put everything in the description. I provided the link i used to download the file.  I have the ccm-Universalx64.tar file.
I've also shown the command that I have run, without the build #.

Am I missing something?

You have not mention the Linux distro you are using.

I visited your download link but all it offered me was a file with name ending .EXE. How did you get a tar archive?
