Install the Configuration Manager administrator console

Recently I had to prepare a “Configuration Manager Servicedesk kit”. In the kit I added the Configuration Manager console and Client Center. The installation had a few challanges:

  1. Creating and specifying Setup.ini during the installation
  2. Installing the correct version of Client Center – X64 or X86 – depending on the architecture.

To solve the challenge I created a Task Sequence with these steps

  1. Use Toolkit package
  2. Gather
  3. Run Command
    1. “%_SMSTSOOO00127%\bin\i386\setup.exe” /Script “%_SMSTSOOO00127%\Setup.ini” (where OOO00127 is the packge id).
    2. Make sure you have created a package with the Configmgr. source files and that package is selected in the TS

  4. Install software, select the Install Client Center X64.
    1. On the Options tab create a WMI query and type Select * from Win32_Processor where AddressWidth =’64’

  5. Install software, select the Install Client Center X86.
      On the Options tab create a WMI query and type Select * from Win32_Processor where AddressWidth =’32’
