SCCM 2007 R2 VHD

SCCM 2007 R2 VHD

(OP)
Hello,
I'm completely new to SCCM... Downloaded the Virtual machine (VHD) microsoft offers for download to do a trial.  So, I downloaded the VHD, started it up with MS Virtual Server, and everything works great.  Only problem is... I don't know how to use it to test any PC's.  I'd like to add a small number (maybe 10 or so) PC's to test, but I'm not sure how.  The VHD comes with SCCM and SQL already configured on Server 2003.  The server is also configured as a domain controller.  Will the server need to be on our domain if I want to test PC's on our domain?

RE: SCCM 2007 R2 VHD

No, you need to connect the test machines to that domain.

If you want to evaluate the product on your own environment then you would need to download both http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=06D54615-8F0A-49AB-B195-5CD4FD76ABDF&displaylang=en and http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7376214F-CBA3-4E0D-81FE-AD52488BE3A3&displaylang=en

This is the SP1 release of SCCM and then the R2 pack for it.

The real world is not about exam scores, it's about ability.

Ok, thanks.  I got everything installed and configured, but now I have another issue.  I can see clients in the "all systems" area, but when I try to install the client, it never installs.  Any ideas on what to check?  Thanks!

A little more info... in the ccm.log, I'm seeing the following error:

ERROR: Failed to connect to the \\PCNAME\admin$ share using account 'Machine Account'  $$<SMS_CLIENT_CONFIG_MANAGER><Sat Mar 21 14:23:34.576 2009 Central Daylight Time><thread=3928 (0xF58)>

I can post more log details if needed.

RE: SCCM 2007 R2 VHD

Have you configured a Computer Client Agent account? essentially you need to configure an account that would have local admin rights on the machine.

RE: SCCM 2007 R2 VHD

My bad, it's actually the Client Push Account in the Client Distribution Methods tab (Client Push\Accounts tab), it needs to be an account that also has local admin rights on the machine.

Ok, yes, I do have an account with local admin rights in there.  The weird thing is... when I select 'install client' in SCCM, it puts the ccmsetup folder on my PC, but in SCCM, it shows the client as not installed, and I can't view any information about my PC.  Also, if I try to connect via the site code, it errors out.
