I am able to install JRE 6 udate 31 successfully on a number of systems using SCCM. The Sccm Report returns success and as you can see for the command line I am logging to a file. The file does not log any problems but in fact it states everything was installed successfully.

 jre-6u31.exe /s MOZILLA=1 IEXPLORER=1 ADDLOCAL=jrecore REBOOT=Suppress JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0 /l c:\Windows\System32\CCMSetup\SCCM_Jre6u31Ins.log

Out of the systems targetted there are a nice number that registry/Add Remove programs states the app is installed but the BIN and LIB directories are both empty.

Any ideas what is happening and how to fix?

Did you check the c:\Windows\System32\CCMSetup\SCCM_Jre6u31Ins.log log file?

Are there any errors reported in this log file?

I am presuming you're using SCUP import the update into the WSUS catalogue and then deploying the Java update via Config Manager.


There is a bug with Java, certainly from personal experience in version 6, where it will occasionally fail to install AFTER wiping the existing version.


If you are too conservative with your Installed and Installable Rules, then the post install check will flag the attempt as complete (as the reg key no longer exists!). I worked around this by moving slightly higher up the registry tree. It still failed, yes, however at this point instead of leaving the user without Java it would keep retrying the update based upon what was left of the previous Java install.


At least it works well for me :0)
