Issues deployment executables and scripts in SCCM 2012

I've been trying to deploy BGinfo and a Java excutable using SCCM, but so far, in spite of following what it seems all the correct steps, the jobs are not working. Neither one of these are deploying to the device collections I created. I need urgent help on this, if you need further information please feel free to ask.

Are these apps or packages?  If apps: check C:\windows\ccm\logs\AppEnforce.log on the target PC and if it's a package check C:\windows\ccm\logs\Execmgr.log.  You are looking for any error messages.

Do note that deployments take time and only fire when the client checks in with SCCM.

Hi, thanks for your pointers. I'm presently working on both packages and deployments. I have new apps and packages to test, I will see what the latency is. Thanks, JRodz

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that the issue seemed to have been extreme latency from the time I deployed the jobs and the time the computer client actually woke to the request. It did install and  worked. The logs didn't have much to say other than time stamps. Thanks

At least reviewing the logs helped me rule out what was working or not, and I could see time lines and dates. Lots of reading!

Look under Administration>Client Settings>Client Policy.  The default polling interval is 60 minutes, so if you send a program out, it could take up to that point.  You can turn that down, but more load will be put on the server, so be sure to test and watch the server after changing this setting.

You can also use Recast (, scroll to the bottom of the page for the free edition.  This will install a snap-in into the SCCM console so you can right-click on a computer and force a policy check-in right away.
