SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista


has someone already SMS on vista clients running without problems?

Friendly regards,

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

the amount of errors we are reciveing in our are to much to list.  Hell no, not yet.  

We've pulled a Premier Support request and our SMS group is working with a rep.

we will not allow any vista machines on our network unitl we get this ironed out....


RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

thank you for your reply. we made some tests here - but just with only one pc. so far we had no problem to advertise programs. only one program made problems - but that was because it doesn't run with vista.


RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

that half of our problems too.  We're finding many software bundles that have issues....


RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

If I recall right MS does not support the use of SMS for Vista at this time. (how dumb is that)

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

think there was an announcement from MS stating that Vista will be supported only when SMS 2003 SP3 is released. Its in Beta now.

Lost the link, but I think it wouldn't be tough to find.


RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

I also recall reading that Vista was not officially supported until SMS 2003 SP3 is released, but cannot recall where I saw that.

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

I can tell you that SMS 2003 SP2 client does function on Vista.  I am not 100% sure to what degree.  I can tell you HW/SW inventory and software distribution work.

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

Not even sure why you would want to use Vista in a development/prodction envrionment at this point,  hell it was just released what a week ago?!

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista


we've it here since november 2006. and we made just some tests. thank you all for the great response! smile

RE: SMS 2003 SP 2 and Vista

I have been able to get the sms client to install on both x64 and 32bit Vista RTM..

However, only the 32bit installation will allow any of the advertised apps I have, to be run...

The x64 Vista shows the apps, but clicking run says they arent available.

Anyone gotten advertised apps to work in x64 Vista?

Or is this a wait till sp3 type thing.
