[ConfigMgr 2007] Installing the ConfigMgr 2007 agent on a workgroup machine when connected over Internet

Ever wondered hoe to install the ConfigMgr Client on a workgroup machine that’s connected over the Internet? Well in this post on The Configuration Manager Support Team Blog Adnan Ezzi explains all:

fixI had an interesting case the other day and since I didn’t see it documented anywhere I thought I’d mention it here in case anyone else runs into it.  What can happen is that when you try to install the Configuration Manager 2007 agent on a workgroup machine when connected over Internet, which does not have access to the Active Directory, the agent installation may fail with the following error:

client.msi.log

Action start 21:42:22: CcmValidateInternetConfigurations.
[21:42:22] The 'CCMHOSTNAME' is passed as msi parameter and the value is 'sccm2007.scs.in'.
[21:42:22] Client Internet MP Host Name is 'sccm2007.scs.in'.
[21:42:22] The msi parameter 'CCMHTTPSSTATE' is missing .
[21:42:22] Providing MSI parameter 'CCMHOSTNAME' means client is IBCM enabled.
[21:42:22] Client must be in Native mode while it is IBCM enabled.
[21:42:22] @@ERR:26001

Error 26001. The Management Point (MP) must be in Native mode when client is internet enabled.

ccmsetup.log

For some reason it seemed that specifying the /native switch was not kicking off.  We next tried including the CCMHTTPSSTATE=1 property in the command line, so the command line looked like this:

ccmsetup.exe /source: C:\ccmclient /native: CCMALWAYSINF=1 SMSMP=sccm2007.scs.in SMSSITECODE=CEN DNSSUFFIX=scs.in CCMHOSTNAME=sccm2007.scs.in ccmhttpsstate=1

Only after we included the CCMHTTPSSTATE=1 property did the installation succeed.

Hope this helps,
