Advanced Client Installation Question

Advanced Client Installation Question

Advanced Client Installation Question


I'm new to SMS 2003 and have setup a test network for learning.

I cannot get the Advanced Client to install, via the SMS Admin Console.

It tells me Client=No and Assigned=No

I have been trying for sometime and just went to windows xp pro machine, with Firewall disabled, and ran the adv client with no problem. now th sms admin concole shows Client=Yes and Assigned=Yes.

So what am I missing here.

I created a group called smsmange in AD and then created a user called smsinstall and added it to this group. then added smsmange to local admin group on win xp machine.

If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know.

Thanks for your help.


RE: Advanced Client Installation Question

Your probably missing a Server locator point entry in WINS or you havent extended the schema, would be my 1st guesses.
