Hi everyone,

I'm installing sms on a win 2003 server and after installing the sms client-Control panel-Systems Management-Actions.... i get only 2 actions installed called
*Machine policy retrieval & Evaluation Cycle /
*User Policy retrieval and evaluation cycle
Also, on the advanced tab, it does not automatically discover the site code.
Urlscan has been run on the server as well.
Does anyone have any pointers?

Cheers

Check ccmsetup.log on the client, othe rlogs on client

Has DS schema been properly extended?
Is DNS working properly?
Check site bounderies.

If you make SMSSitecode=<yourSite> instead of Auto will itwork?

Hiya,
Thanks for the response, i changed the AD site on site boundaries from the site full name to it's abbreviation and it managed to discover the site code, but the actions still will not install. Still comes up with the 2 actions i specified above.

Site in boundaries should be Default-First-Site-Name if you never changed it ... whatever you see in AD Sites & services

Did you reinstall the client checking "always install (repair or upgrade)" on the wizard? I'd also uncheck "only this site" unless you have multiple sites.

Check ccmsetup.log and client.msi.log ion client for errs while or after client install

Try installing the client manually and see what happens.

Hiya,
I received the following error messages from ccmexec.log
OutgoingMessage(Queue='mp_[http]mp_policymanager', ID={AF6E6B86-F319-45DF-A8E5-487ADC3798C6}): Will be discarded (expired).
OutgoingMessage(Queue='mp_[http]mp_policymanager', ID={B81D5066-3F3D-42BA-8BC7-DE0972DA46A0}): Will be discarded (expired).
CRequestResponse::Send failed with code 0x8007007e

When i googled it, i found a blog here http://www.myitforum.com/forums/m_155817/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm#155817

I've tried most of the tips but still wouldn't work, BUT one thing i noticed though is that the SMS client on the Primary Domain controller has got the actions list fully propagating, so i'm suspecting something to do with group policy or some sort.

Any ideas will be great
Thanks

I'm running out of ideas ...

Is firewall off?

You say DC is OK .. is SMS on a DC? MS has special procedures for installing SMS on a DC. If not is client OK on SMS Server?

Maybe thiswill help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899715

Or search/ask here:..

Is firewall off? I'd expect it wouldn't install at all, but worth a look

is SMS on a DC
Hiya,
The DC has got just the SMS advanced client on it, SMS server is on it's own box...i dont think it's a problem with the firewall either, what i'm assuming is a problem with IIS, i've tried fooling the system by changing the port from 80 to 85 and reverting back to it's original port number, i've re-installed the client manually using msixec /i client.msi CCMHTTPPORT='PORT#' and that hasn't worked as well, restarted the IIS service, reboot the server , still no luck.

If you suspect IIS, Try removing and reinstalling it. Be sure BITS is enabled.
Be sure SMS services are started.
