Q. How can I enable the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Client Push Installation method? I've created a Client Push Installation account, but Client Push Installation still doesn't work.

A. When you enable the SMS 2003 Client Push Installation method, in addition to setting a Client Push Installation account, you must specify an account for the SMS Software Distribution component, as follows:

  1. Start the SMS Administrator console (click Start, Programs, Systems Management Server, SMS Administrator Console).
  2. Expand Site Database, Site Hierarchy, &ltSite name&gt, Site Settings, Component Configuration.
  3. Right-click Software Distribution and select Properties.
  4. On the General tab, under Advanced Client Network Access Account, click Set and select the account to use. Click OK.
  5. Click OK.
