SCCM 2012 – Install Console on remote client

Update June 9 2013: See new SP1 post: https://blog.hosebei.ch/2013/06/09/sccm-2012-sp1-install-console-on-remote-client/

Because the RC2 entry about the Installation of the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Console is often read, I will give an update to the final.

It is now well documented and still very easy:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712320.aspx#BKMK_InstallConsole (Refer to “To install a Configuration Manager console from a command prompt”)

To make it short: Use the following paramters to install the console, the installation files still resides in “[SCCMInstallationDirectory]toolsConsoleSetup”, take both, the AdminConsole.msi and ConsoleSetup.exe:
"ConsoleSetup.exe" /q TargetDir="%programfiles%SCCM2012Console" EnableSQM=0 DefaultSiteServerName=FQDNSiteServer

Those three parameters are necessary. For uninstall, just choose the product code from AdminConsole.msi.

  1. Just a heads up don’t copy and past the code above, the quotes don’t copy properly and will give you errors during installation! 🙂
