    Hi all,

    Do you have a service account setup that has the correct local admin rights on the PC?

    Also ensure you have the latest version of windows installer 3.3 or later I think - this was one issue I had when I started with SCCM.

    What OS's are your clients? If you go to "C:\Windows\" look for a folder called "ccmsetup". If that's there, SCCM is able to contact the client machine. Within that folder there should be a "Logs" folder (so: "C:\Windows\ccmsetup\Logs"). Look for a log called "ccmsetup.log". If you can get hold of that, please post the file on here (attach it rather than copy and paste the data).
    If that's not there, go on to the SCCM server it self, go to the install location (in my case I have it on the D: drive away from the system drive), and go to:

    D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs
    Post the log file called: "Ccm.log"

    Hi,

    So the problem might be either networking or the service account which you have assigned to SCCM.
    SCCM_Error1.JPG
    As you have managed to install the client on SOME computers, my guess would be that the service account is fine (assuming they are all part of the same domain...etc).

    I had this problem recently in fact with a server which had a different set up for networking (Hyper-V servers). I had set some route adds on the SCCM Server it self a while ago to be able to get across the VLANs. The network VLANs had changed but I hadn't removed the route adds.
    Removed all of the route adds, as we now have a firewall in place which also does the routing (PFSense), and it worked fine.
    So, I would check:

    1. Log on to the server
    2. Try to manually reach the C$ of a machine in question (You might be able to, but not 100%. I could C$ one of my servers, but not the other lol).
    3. Try to ping if you cannot C$
    4. check the networking on both the server and client ends. Check switch configurations and ports and make sure they can all see each other from client to server and server to client

    Hope this helps

    ok. There no admin account on the computers. Theres the administrator and guest (disabled)

    I can connect fine from the server to computer. Both computers are on the network and on the same vlan.

    Okay. Can you check the Route tables on the server?
    Open cmd and type "Route print". Check the routes and make sure they are all correct. You can do "Route delete *" and that will remove them all, but if you have some set up already, I wouldn't recommend it unless you can get them back to how you want them easily.
    Otherwise, check the Network Access Account which you have assigned to SCCM.

    1. Open the SCCM Console and go to "Administration" from the bottom left menu
    2. Expand Site Configuration and select "Sites"
    3. Right click on your site, move down to the "Configure Site Components" menu and select "Software Distribution".
    4. Click on the "Network Access Account"

    Check the account in there is a domain admin for the computers in question. If it isn't, add one that is and try again.

    Is it possible that I could remotely connect and have a look? Use Teamviewer or something? PM me if you like (If we find a solution, we will post it here for others). Would be useful to be able to see the setup of SCCM you have.

    Now that you have added the network access account, can you post the ccm.log again? It should have a different error this time.
    Your account is 100% domain admin? No restrictions?

    I assume you've checked your boundary is correct?

    Have you configured a Client Installation Account?

    \Administration\Overview\Site Configuration\Sites > <Site Name> > Client Installation Settings > Client Push Installation > Accounts Tab

    Also, make sure it has Local Administrator rights
