SMS 2.0 - Client Services won't install on secondary site BDC's

SMS 2.0 - Client Services won't install on secondary site BDC's

SMS 2.0 - Client Services won't install on secondary site BDC's

we are having dreadful problems with SMS2.0. Particularly cannot remote control secondary sites that are BDC's. Also the task SMSExec.exe is running at 50-80% every few minutes, basically destroying the performance of our PPRO/P2 350 servers.

All secondary sites are connected via 64k Frame circuits and running NT4.SP4 and some SP5.

as yet we cannot find any faith in SMS2.0 !!!!!


RE: SMS 2.0 - Client Services won't install on secondary site BDC's

We also had some problems with Remote control installing on some of our servers when we upgraded from SMS 1.2 to 2.0. On these servers, we found that a registry setting was preventing the 2.0 Remote Control from installing.

On the servers in question, we would go to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/SMS/Client/Configuration/SMS 1.2 Client Migration

The value "Overall 1.x migration status" would show as Pending or Failed. We changed the value to "Done".

We then closed the registry editor, and went to our Client Access Point (CAP_XXX) and in the clicomp.box\remctrl\i386 directory, we ran remctrl.exe to manually install the Remote Control.
