install client push installation(SCCM) using ps script


I am trying to install client push using SCCM but not able to install it. Is there any command or powershell script to install client push throguh SCCM.

You don't need Powershell for this - it's making an easy job complex. You need to explain what *exactly* doesn't work, what does happen (how far it gets), what your setup is, version, and look at the logs (c:\windows\ccmsetup\setup.log).

Also there 4 or 5 different ways to push client, besides the native site-wide push. I've only ever used client push and it works absolutely fine!

Hi Mike,

Will you help us with the 4 or 5 different ways of the solution for the Client push? So, that we can select the best one and apply for the same.

Actually I tried to install client by clicking on Administration->site configuration->sites->client installation Settings->client push installation , in this method I am not getting ccmsetup.exe file in task manager tab.  
second method I tried to install ccmsetup manually by copying client folder. The SCCM 2012 client is stored on your SCCM server (or additional Management Points) in the Client-folder under SMS_SITECODE (\\SCCMSERVER\SMS_SITECODE\Client\).for example  my sitecode name is KCS. so I go to path (\\SCCMSERVER\SMS_KCS\Client\). Then installed ccmsetup.exe manually . It is showing in task manager but not in control panel . How mych time does it take to install the ccmsetup? I have followed below link:


Can you please explain the way I can get the configuration manager in control panel. Or the reason why it is not present in control panel even after installation process

I've created a FAQ from your post

Q: How mych time does it take to install the ccmsetup?
A: It's not fast- it can take 20 mins

Q: ccmsetup.exe is showing in task manager but not in control panel .
A:  CCMSetup is the main installer; it does lots of things and does take a while to complete accordingly. If you watch task-manager, the process is ccmsetup.exe and you need to wait until the process closes. At this point look in control panel for the new applet. (This is NOT ccmsetup.exe).
Q: Using client push installation I am not getting ccmsetup.exe file in task manager tab
A: This sounds like you don't have the right firewall port open. Unless you open the  port it won't ever work.
You need to allow both File and Printer Sharing and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
