Using the Client Push Installation Wizard in SCCM 2012

Using the Client Push Installation Wizard in SCCM 2012

One way to install the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2012 client is to use the Client Push Installation Wizard.  The wizard conveniently allows you to initiate the client push installation when you want to and to a specific resource or all resources in a collection.  You can also use the automatic site-wide push installation but you don’t have much control as the site server will push the client to any discovered resource.  In this post, I describe how to use the Client Push Installation Wizard.

For the SCCM server to be able to push the client to a resource, it must be able to access the ADMIN$ share on that resource (this is an administrative share).  For this to work, the Windows firewall on the target resource and any other firewall between the site server and the target computer must allow this traffic. On the target computer, create an exception in the Windows Firewall for the following traffic coming from the site server: File and Printer Sharing and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).  For more information see

Once the firewalls have been configured so the site server can access theADMIN$ share on target systems, the site server must be able to resolve the target computer name to an IP address (and of course the target system must be online).  The site server must also use a user account that has local administrative rights on the target system when attempting to install the client.  You can indicate what account to use.  If you don’t specify an account, the site server will attempt to use its computer account.  To specify a client push installation account, right-click on your site, select Client Installation Settings and click on Client Push Installation.

ConfigMgr 2012: Could not connect or execute SQL query setup error

I’ve managed to deploy the latest version of SCCM 2012 in the lab, but not without a few issues. Most notably the Could not connect or execute SQL query generic not-very-helpful error.

The first thing you do in this case is check the setup logs. They were clean: Connections to INSTANCEmaster were successful and suddenly: “Failed!”. I was able to telnet server.fqdn.com on port 1433, as per remote SQL instance requirements, and that was successful as well.

..but still:
