client won't install - even when run manually
Having trouble installing the client manually. I keep getting an access denied error in the ccmsetup.log file where it can't access the source. I then created a new folder on the Primary server and placed all of the client files there. I then gave Domain Users and Domain Computers FULL rights to this new share. From a client machine I connected to this new share: \\Servername\SCCMClient$ and then I dragged the ccmsetup.exe into a CMD window and passed it SMSSITECODE= value. I still get an access denied on the source. Why? what can cause this? I connected to the share and manually ran the ccmsetup.exe so what can't it do/find?mqh7

Is your command prompt elevated?

Hi, Where do you get access denied? in the ccmsetup.log file? even if you copy the whole client directory to another location CCMSetup.exe wills till contact the MP and download the client files from there. Also as suggested above you should run the ccmsetup as admin and if you have UAC enabled in Vista/Windows 7 you should run the command prompt elevated by using right-click and run as administrator. I would also try to map the drive or type the UNC path in the ccmsetup command line as you are dragging the command from a non-elevated to another session. You need to use more parameters for ccmsetup to use a direcotry as a the source location for the files.

You have set the Sharing permission, but how about the Security settings? Troubleshooting that you can perform, give everyone full control in the Sharing Permission and Security Settings. Then try to install again :) Regards, Hau
