unable to get client for SMS installed on win9x desktops

unable to get client for SMS installed on win9x desktops

unable to get client for SMS installed on win9x desktops

(OP)
I have done an "express" install of SMS 2.0 on a standalone server.  there is 1 PDC, 1 SMS server and 1 win9x client pc.

I have them all on 192.168.0.x subnet 255.255.255.0

I cannot get the win9x client box to get discovered in the SMS server admin console or the client software to install automatically onto it.

I have tried adding DNS and WINS to the pdc and to the win9x and it still doesn't see it.  It will see it in network neighborhood however.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

RE: unable to get client for SMS installed on win9x desktops

Are you entering 255.255.255.0 as your subnet in the site boundaries?  If you are, the clients won't get discovered because that is the subnet mask.  Based on your message, the subnet entered into the site boundaries should be something like 192.168.0.0.

I am using 192.168.0.0  I believe this is a bug in the SMS2.0 prg.  I heard that SP2 will fix it.  It DOES DISCOVER THE WinNT pc's fine.

For Win95, load service pack 1 (of course you've already done this), then load the latest DCOM95 (1.2?)
