Installing the ConfigMgr Console for SCCM

Once you have Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 installed, you most likely will want to manage it remotely on a computer, not from the server itself. This requires you installing the ConfigMgr console.

How to install ConfigMgr Console for SCCM

Here are the steps.

Step 1

Launch the SCCM Install and run the splash.hta file.

Step 2

Under Install, click on “Configuration Manager 2007 SP2.” (also works for SP1)

Step 3

Select “Next” and then “Next” again on the only default you should have, which is the “Install or upgrade an administrator console.”

Step 4

Accept the license terms, select don’t participate, and leave the default path and click “Next”.

Step 5

Under the Server Name, type the name of your SCCM server. For my example, it is SCCM1.

Step 6

Select “Next”, select “Begin Install”, and then wait for the configuration and installation to finish, should look like picture below.

Step 7

Once that is finished you should have a shortcut in your Program Files folder called ConfigMgr Console. You then have to make sure the “remote permissions” for using the console are setup. That will be in my next post.
