how to prevent from installing the sms client?

how to prevent from installing the sms client?

(OP)
I have a SMS test domain with 2 subnets.
The boundaries are modified to know only one subnet.
network discovery method and logon client installation are enabled.
If I log on on a computer in the excluded subnet the
directory winnt\ms\sms is created. But I donĀ“t want that.
Do you know how I can make that?

Thanks a lot

Since client logon installation is enabled you will get some SMS 2 client pieces installed, but the device can't be assigned since it's outside the boundaries. There are at least two ways at the client level to prevent SMS 2 from installing:

1. Create a file with no extension called MS in %windir%. This prevents the SMS directory structure from being created.

2. If you are using smsls.bat out of the box you can set an the environment variable SESSIONNAME="This variable prevents SMS 2 from installing" -- the text in the quotes is not important. This sets the command "if not %SESSIONNAME%. == . goto END" in SMSLS.bat to TRUE and then exits.

You could also modify SMSLS.BAT, or a logon script, to look for a file, directory or variable on the client so that it does not run.
