I have implemented/installed SMS 2.0 into several companies over the past year. In every case I get about a 92%-96% penetration, meaning that the SMS clients fully configure as a SMS client, all the components work on the client, and they show up correctly in the collection (domain, etc..)
I have never achieved this at 100% and always have to re-install those clients, or send ddr files using the addsysgui tool on BOK4.5.
I have SMS set up thus:
Windows Networking Logon Client Installation and Windows Networking Logon Discovery are enabled, updating logon points every 2 hours, not modifing logon scripts.
I install the clients using custom .bat or .kix files that search the client for %systemroot%\smscfg.ini and call the smsboot1.exe file for installation.
Lately I have modified the scripts to search for the clicomp directory .exe files (hiv32.exe,sinv32.exe, Wuser.exe,etc..) and recalling the smsboot1.exe if any of these are missing.
So, what are all of you doing? Is this pretty much normal? I (unfortunately) have always been on my own with SMS and would really like some feedback on this.
