In the last section we copied the ConfigMgr client installation files to the Linux server. Now we will instal the client.
Launch PuTTY and connect to the Linux server.
Execute the following commands
ls -l (this lists the files and shows the file permissions)
Note that all the file permissions are Read & Write (no execute). We must change this (on the "install" file) to allow execute.
You can use either
chmod 755 install
chmod +x install
See that the permissions have changed for the "install" file.
Now install the client. Execute the following command:
./install -mp SCCM_Server.domain.local -sitecode P01 ccm-Universalx64.tar
Client has been installed.
New folders have been created.
View the configuration file by executing the following:
View the end of the log file by executing the following:
tail -F /var/opt/microsoft/scxcm.log
(Tip: press ESC & q together to leave the log view and return to command line).
See ConfigMgr service (ccmexecd).
To start the client:
To stop the client:
In the next section we will ensure that the server is Approved in ConfigMgr so that it can receive policy. We will also examine inventory.
