SCCM client installation error
I'm now setting up SCCM in this school and am hitting a snag.
I've basically followed all the instructions at windows-noob and am having an issue deploying the client. If it auto-deploys, it doesn't install as it claims it can't find the AD settings
If I do a push install manually, stating the site code etc... I get a different message:
Failed to get assigned site from AD. Error 0x80004005 ccmsetup 17/01/2013 15:14:39 6584 (0x19B8)
Now, I don't see what I've done wrong.
Failed to get DP locations as the expected version from MP 'SCCM.sch4290.somerset.gov.uk'. Error 0x87d00215 ccmsetup 17/01/2013 15:22:58 5556 (0x15B4)
Anyone got any ideas. For someone who is an SCCM noob, the log files are somewhat of a maze of nightmares!

In AD sites and services do you have the Subnet the client computer is living in assigned to your AD site please?

To make the logs easier: in your install media (unpackaged download, w/e), in the Tools folder, there should be a program called cmtrace.exe. Open that and tell it yes, be the default viewer. Now open the relevant logs in that program and they will be much, much easier to parse - colour coding and everything.
Personally I've copied it to a share so I can get to it from any computer easily, you can't read SCCM logs without it.
As @FN-GM says, AD Sites and Services is a good place to start - I have all my subnets listed in there, then SCCM picks up clients using AD Forest Discovery (I think) with Automaticall create IP address range boundaries... selected. Been a fair few months since I set it all up so bit rusty, tbh.

CMTrace is great, but the fact there are 84 for SCCM alone, then WSUS files, SMS files etc... Which file does what? I've found ccmsetup.log, and some relevant ones on the server but most seem odd
And @FN-GM - nope! Didn't know about that, I didn't set this AD up.

That will be it
And @FN-GM - nope! Didn't know about that, I didn't set this AD up

I've added the subnet, which makes sense to resolve the first error (the AD part), but it doesn't resolve the second error, for a manual install with the site code being pushed with it.

Are you boundires setup by AD sites?
17th January 2013, 05:14 PM #8
Bet me to it @FN-GM
Check your boundaries. I had issues with deployments etc. Then realised that i still had my test boundaries setup
Also, look here for the location of log files and what they mean

My tactic for working out which log is relevant to me with SCCM can best be summed up as "Date Modified"

im having this issue with sccm 2012 sp1 on XP clients? Windows 7 are fine

I have a single boundary set up, of type Active Directory, linked to our single AD site. I then have a single boundary group, which references that same boundary, and that is set for group assignment with the site in SCCM.

It might just need some time, adter you have jigged about the AD sites.
Have you put all your subnets in the AD site?
17th January 2013, 06:07 PM #13
Yup. I have.

In SCCM can you see the machine in the devices?
17th January 2013, 07:09 PM #15
As in, do they appear under devices? Yes, they do.
