    Question Clients on Windows 7

    Hi all,

    We currently have SCCM 2007 with R2 installed. Our clients are all WinXP and are operational from with in the SCCM Console. The ConfigMgrClientVersion on the XP systems is 4.00.6221.1000. The SCCM Version is 4.00.6487.2000.
    I have been trying to test the client on a Windows 7 machine. It is doing a manual install OK but will not do a ConfigMgr Site Discovery, with the error message 'Automatic Site Code Discovery was unsuccessful'.
    Do I have the correct client version to work with Windows 7?
    From the Console, the machine is reported as having no client, Approved is N/A, and assigned is yes.
    Does anyone have any suggestions that I can try?

    Thanks in advance.

    Steve

    Have you installed SP2 onto SCCM 2007 R2?

    check the command line install stuff.... you can specify sitecode, cache size etc.

    I would recommend patching to R2 - Sp2, then upgrade to R3 - a KB/hotfix is needed
    Also, I am running it in Mixed Mode with no trouble at all on Windows XP, Server 2003, Windows 7 and Server 2008/R2

    SP2 is installed, on R2, and the site is running in Mixed Mode.
    I will try reinstalling the client with the command line options again.
    Gatt, it is not convenient to upgrade to R3 just yet, because of a few other considerations, but it is on the list for the near future.

    Mixed mode pretty much must be installed with switches and wont autodetect I think.

    Nice one thanks guys. I uninstalled and re-installed the client using the SMSSITECODE switch and it appears to be working OK now.
    Incidentally if anyone is interested, immediately after installation I opened the Task Manager Resource Monitor, ticked ccmexec in the overview window, and it was interesting to see the huge amount of network and disk activity that occurs for 15 minutes or so, while ccmexec contacts the Site Server, presumably while it carries out the hardware and software inventories, and various other actions.

    Incidentally, what preperation would I need to do to prepare the Windows 7 client to create an image, so as to avoid any duplicate GUIDs etc.

    Thanks again for the help.
