About client installation parameters and properties in Configuration Manager

Applies to: Configuration Manager (current branch)

Use the CCMSetup.exe command to install the Configuration Manager client. If you provide client installation parameters on the command line, they modify the installation behavior. If you provide client installation properties on the command line, they modify the initial configuration of the installed client agent.

About CCMSetup.exe

The CCMSetup.exe command downloads needed files to install the client from a management point or a source location. These files might include:

  • The Windows Installer package client.msi that installs the client software

  • Client prerequisites

  • Updates and fixes for the Configuration Manager client

Note

You can't directly install client.msi.

CCMSetup.exe provides command-line parameters to customize the installation. Parameters are prefixed with a slash (/) and by convention are lower case. You specify the value of a parameter when necessary using a colon (:) immediately followed by the value. For more information, see CCMSetup.exe command-line parameters.

You can also supply properties at the CCMSetup.exe command line to modify the behavior of client.msi.Properties by convention are upper case. You specify a value for a property using an equal sign (=) immediately followed by the value. For more information, see Client.msi properties.

Important

Specify CCMSetup parameters before you specify properties for client.msi.

CCMSetup.exe and the supporting files are on the site server in the Client folder of the Configuration Manager installation folder. Configuration Manager shares this folder to the network under the site share. For example, \\SiteServer\SMS_ABC\Client.

At the command prompt, the CCMSetup.exe command uses the following format:

CCMSetup.exe [<Ccmsetup parameters>] [<client.msi setup properties>]

For example:

CCMSetup.exe /mp:SMSMP01 /logon SMSSITECODE=S01 FSP=SMSFSP01

This example does the following things:

  • Specifies the management point named SMSMP01 to request a list of distribution points to download the client installation files.

  • Specifies that installation should stop if a version of the client already exists on the computer.

  • Instructs client.msi to assign the client to the site code S01.

  • Instructs client.msi to use the fallback status point named SMSFP01.

Tip

If a parameter value has spaces, surround it with quotation marks.

If you extend the Active Directory schema for Configuration Manager, the site publishes many client installation properties in Active Directory Domain Services. The Configuration Manager client automatically reads these properties. For more information, see About client installation properties published to Active Directory Domain Services

CCMSetup.exe command-line parameters

/?

Shows available command-line parameters for ccmsetup.exe.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /?

/source

Specifies the file download location. Use a local or UNC path. The device downloads files using the server message block (SMB) protocol. To use /source, the Windows user account for client installation needs Read permissions to the location.

For more information on how ccmsetup downloads content, see Boundary groups - client installation. That article also includes details of ccmsetup behavior if you use both /mp and /source parameters.

Tip

You can use the /source parameter more than once in a command line to specify alternative download locations.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /source:"\\server\share"

/mp

Specifies a source management point for computers to connect to. Computers use this management point to find the nearest distribution point for the installation files. If there are no distribution points, or computers can't download the files from the distribution points after four hours, they download the files from the specified management point.

For more information on how ccmsetup downloads content, see Boundary groups - client installation. That article also includes details of ccmsetup behavior if you use both /mp and /source parameters.

Important

This parameter specifies an initial management point for computers to find a download source, and can be any management point in any site. It doesn't assign the client to the specified management point.

Computers download the files over an HTTP or HTTPS connection, depending on the site system role configuration for client connections. The download can also use BITS throttling if you configure it. If you configure all distribution points and management points for HTTPS client connections only, verify that the client computer has a valid client certificate.

You can use the /mp command-line parameter to specify more than one management point. If the computer fails to connect to the first one, it tries the next in the specified list. When you specify multiple management points, separate the values by semicolons.

If the client connects to a management point using HTTPS, specify the FQDN not the computer name. The value must match the management point PKI certificate's Subject or Subject Alternative Name. Although Configuration Manager supports using a computer name in the certificate for connections on the intranet, using an FQDN is recommended.

Example with the computer name: ccmsetup.exe /mp:SMSMP01

Example with the FQDN: ccmsetup.exe /mp:smsmp01.contoso.com

This parameter can also specify the URL of a cloud management gateway (CMG). Use this URL to install the client on an internet-based device. To get the value for this parameter, use the following steps:

  • Create a CMG. For more information, see Set up a CMG.

  • On an active client, open a Windows PowerShell command prompt as an administrator.

  • Run the following command:

    (Get-WmiObject -Namespace Root\Ccm\LocationServices -Class SMS_ActiveMPCandidate | Where-Object {$_.Type -eq "Internet"}).MP
    
  • Append the https:// prefix to use with the /mp parameter.

Example for when you use the cloud management gateway URL: ccmsetup.exe /mp:https://CONTOSO.CLOUDAPP.NET/CCM_Proxy_MutualAuth/72057598037248100

Important

When specifying the URL of a cloud management gateway for the /mp parameter, it must start with https://.

/regtoken

Starting in version 2002, use this parameter to provide a bulk registration token. An internet-based device uses this token in the registration process through a cloud management gateway (CMG). For more information, see Token-based authentication for CMG.

When you use this parameter, also include the following parameters and properties:

The following example command line includes the other required setup parameters and properties:

ccmsetup.exe /mp:https://CONTOSO.CLOUDAPP.NET/CCM_Proxy_MutualAuth/72186325152220500 CCMHOSTNAME=CONTOSO.CLOUDAPP.NET/CCM_Proxy_MutualAuth/72186325152220500 SMSSiteCode=ABC SMSMP=https://mp1.contoso.com /regtoken:eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsIng1dCI6Ik9Tbzh2Tmd5VldRUjlDYVh5T2lacHFlMDlXNCJ9.eyJTQ0NNVG9rZW5DYXRlZ29yeSI6IlN7Q01QcmVBdXRoVG9rZW4iLCJBdXRob3JpdHkiOiJTQ0NNIiwiTGljZW5zZSI6IlNDQ00iLCJUeXBlIjoiQnVsa1JlZ2lzdHJhdGlvbiIsIlRlbmFudElkIjoiQ0RDQzVFOTEtMEFERi00QTI0LTgyRDAtMTk2NjY3RjFDMDgxIiwiVW5pcXVlSWQiOiJkYjU5MWUzMy1wNmZkLTRjNWItODJmMy1iZjY3M2U1YmQwYTIiLCJpc3MiOiJ1cm46c2NjbTpvYXV0aDI6Y2RjYzVlOTEtMGFkZi00YTI0LTgyZDAtMTk2NjY3ZjFjMDgxIiwiYXVkIjoidXJuOnNjY206c2VydmljZSIsImV4cCI6MTU4MDQxNbUwNSwibmJmIjoxNTgwMTU2MzA1fQ.ZUJkxCX6lxHUZhMH_WhYXFm_tbXenEdpgnbIqI1h8hYIJw7xDk3wv625SCfNfsqxhAwRwJByfkXdVGgIpAcFshzArXUVPPvmiUGaxlbB83etUTQjrLIk-gvQQZiE5NSgJ63LCp5KtqFCZe8vlZxnOloErFIrebjFikxqAgwOO4i5ukJdl3KQ07YPRhwpuXmwxRf1vsiawXBvTMhy40SOeZ3mAyCRypQpQNa7NM3adCBwUtYKwHqiX3r1jQU0y57LvU_brBfLUL6JUpk3ri-LSpwPFarRXzZPJUu4-mQFIgrMmKCYbFk3AaEvvrJienfWSvFYLpIYA7lg-6EVYRcCAA

/retry

If CCMSetup.exe fails to download installation files, use this parameter to specify the retry interval in minutes. CCMSetup continues to retry until it reaches the limit specified in the /downloadtimeout parameter.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /retry:20

/noservice

This parameter prevents CCMSetup from running as a service, which it does by default. When CCMSetup runs as a service, it runs in the context of the Local System account of the computer. This account might not have sufficient rights to access required network resources for the installation. With /noservice, CCMSetup.exe runs in the context of the user account that you use to start the installation.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /noservice

/service

Specifies that CCMSetup should run as a service that uses the Local System account.

Tip

If you're using a script to run CCMSetup.exe with the /service parameter, CCMSetup.exe exits after the service starts. It might not correctly report installation details to the script.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /service

/uninstall

Use this parameter to uninstall the Configuration Manager client. For more information, see Uninstall the client.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /uninstall

/logon

If any version of the client is already installed, this parameter specifies that the client installation should stop.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /logon

/forcereboot

Use this parameter to force the computer to restart if necessary to complete the installation. If you don't specify this parameter, CCMSetup exits when a restart is necessary. It then continues after the next manual restart.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /forcereboot

/BITSPriority

When the device downloads client installation files over an HTTP connection, use this parameter to specify the download priority. Specify one of the following possible values:

  • FOREGROUND

  • HIGH

  • NORMAL (default)

  • LOW

Example: ccmsetup.exe /BITSPriority:HIGH

/downloadtimeout

If CCMSetup fails to download the client installation files, this parameter specifies the maximum timeout in minutes. After this timeout, CCMSetup stops trying to download the installation files. The default value is 1440 minutes (one day).

Use the /retry parameter to specify the interval between retry attempts.

Example: ccmsetup.exe /downloadtimeout:100

/UsePKICert

Specify this parameter for the client to use a PKI client authentication certificate. If you don't include this parameter, or if the client can't find a valid certificate, it uses an HTTP connection with a self-signed certificate.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert

Note

In some scenarios, you don't have to specify this parameter, but still use a client certificate. For example, client push and software update–based client installation. Use this parameter when you manually install a client and use the /mp parameter with an HTTPS-enabled management point.

Also specify this parameter when you install a client for internet-only communication. Use the CCMALWAYSINF=1 property together with the properties for the internet-based management point (CCMHOSTNAME) and the site code (SMSSITECODE). For more information about internet-based client management, see Considerations for client communications from the internet or an untrusted forest.

/NoCRLCheck

Specifies that a client shouldn't check the certificate revocation list (CRL) when it communicates over HTTPS with a PKI certificate. When you don't specify this parameter, the client checks the CRL before it establishes an HTTPS connection. For more information about client CRL checking, see Planning for PKI certificate revocation.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert /NoCRLCheck

/config

This parameter specifies a text file that lists client installation properties.

  • If CCMSetup runs as a service, place this file in the CCMSetup system folder: %Windir%\Ccmsetup.

  • If you specify the /noservice parameter, place this file in the same folder as CCMSetup.exe.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /config:"configuration file name.txt"

To provide the correct file format, use the mobileclienttemplate.tcf file in the \bin\<platform> folder in the Configuration Manager installation directory on the site server. This file has comments about the sections and how to use them. Specify the client installation properties in the [Client Install] section, after the following text: Install=INSTALL=ALL.

Example [Client Install] section entry: Install=INSTALL=ALL SMSSITECODE=ABC SMSCACHESIZE=100

/skipprereq

This parameter specifies that CCMSetup.exe doesn't install the specified prerequisite. You can enter more than one value. Use the semicolon character (;) to separate each value.

Examples:

  • CCMSetup.exe /skipprereq:dotnetfx40_client_x86_x64.exe

  • CCMSetup.exe /skipprereq:dotnetfx40_client_x86_x64.exe;windowsupdateagent30_x86.exe

For more information on client prerequisites, see Windows client prerequisites.

/forceinstall

Specify that CCMSetup.exe uninstalls any existing client, and installs a new client.

/ExcludeFeatures

This parameter specifies that CCMSetup.exe doesn't install the specified feature.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /ExcludeFeatures:ClientUI doesn't install Software Center on the client.

Note

ClientUI is the only value that the /ExcludeFeatures parameter supports.

CCMSetup.exe return codes

The CCMSetup.exe command provides the following return codes. To troubleshoot, review %WinDir%\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.log on the client for context and additional detail about return codes.

Return code Meaning
0 Success
6 Error
7 Reboot required
8 Setup already running
9 Prerequisite evaluation failure
10 Setup manifest hash validation failure

Ccmsetup.msi properties

The following properties can modify the installation behavior of ccmsetup.msi.

CCMSETUPCMD

Use this ccmsetup.msi property to pass additional command-line parameters and properties to ccmsetup.exe. Include other parameters and properties inside quotation marks ("). Use this property when you bootstrap the Configuration Manager client with the Intune MDM installation method.

Example: ccmsetup.msi CCMSETUPCMD="/mp:https://mp.contoso.com CCMHOSTNAME=mp.contoso.com"

Tip

Microsoft Intune limits the command line to 1024 characters.

Client.msi properties

The following properties can modify the installation behavior of client.msi, which ccmsetup.exe installs. If you use the client push installation method, specify these properties on the Client tab of the Client Push Installation Properties in the Configuration Manager console.

AADCLIENTAPPID

Specifies the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) client app identifier. You create or import the client app when you configure Azure services for Cloud Management. An Azure administrator can get the value for this property from the Azure portal. For more information, see get application ID. For the AADCLIENTAPPID property, this application ID is for the Native application type.

Example: ccmsetup.exe AADCLIENTAPPID=aa28e7f1-b88a-43cd-a2e3-f88b257c863b

AADRESOURCEURI

Specifies the Azure AD server app identifier. You create or import the server app when you configure Azure services for Cloud Management. When you create the server app, in the Create Server Application window, this property is the App ID URI.

An Azure administrator can get the value for this property from the Azure portal. In Azure Active Directory, find the server app under App registrations. Look for application type Web app / API. Open the app, select Settings, and then select Properties. Use the App ID URI value for this AADRESOURCEURI client installation property.

Example: ccmsetup.exe AADRESOURCEURI=https://contososerver

AADTENANTID

Specifies the Azure AD tenant identifier. Configuration Manager links to this tenant when you configure Azure services for Cloud Management. To get the value for this property, use the following steps:

  • On a Windows 10 device that is joined to the same Azure AD tenant, open a command prompt.

  • Run the following command: dsregcmd.exe /status

  • In the Device State section, find the TenantId value. For example, TenantId : 607b7853-6f6f-4d5d-b3d4-811c33fdd49a

    Note

    An Azure administrator can also obtain this value in the Azure portal. For more information, see get tenant ID.

Example: ccmsetup.exe AADTENANTID=607b7853-6f6f-4d5d-b3d4-811c33fdd49a

CCMADMINS

Specifies one or more Windows user accounts or groups to be given access to client settings and policies. This property is useful when you don't have local administrative credentials on the client computer. Specify a list of accounts that are separated by semicolons (;).

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMADMINS="domain\account1;domain\group1"

CCMALLOWSILENTREBOOT

If necessary, allow the computer to silently restart after the client installation.

Important

When you use this property, the computer restarts without warning. This behavior occurs even if a user is signed in to Windows.

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMALLOWSILENTREBOOT

CCMALWAYSINF

To specify that the client is always internet-based and never connects to the intranet, set this property value to 1. The client's connection type displays Always Internet.

Use this property with CCMHOSTNAME to specify the FQDN of the internet-based management point. Also use it with the CCMSetup parameter /UsePKICert and the site code (SMSSITECODE).

For more information about internet-based client management, see Considerations for client communications from the internet or an untrusted forest.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert CCMALWAYSINF=1 CCMHOSTNAME=SERVER3.CONTOSO.COM SMSSITECODE=ABC

CCMCERTISSUERS

Use this property to specify the certificate issuers list. This list includes certificate information for the trusted root certification authorities (CA) that the Configuration Manager site trusts.

This value is a case-sensitive match for subject attributes that are in the root CA certificate. Separate attributes by a comma (,) or a semicolon (;). Specify more than one root CA certificate by using a separator bar (|).

Example: CCMCERTISSUERS="CN=Contoso Root CA; OU=Servers; O=Contoso, Ltd; C=US | CN=Litware Corporate Root CA; O=Litware, Inc."

Tip

Use the value of the CertificateIssuers attribute in the mobileclient.tcf file for the site. This file is in the \bin\<platform> subfolder of the Configuration Manager installation directory on the site server.

For more information about the certificate issuers list and how clients use it during the certificate selection process, see Planning for PKI client certificate selection.

CCMCERTSEL

If the client has more than one certificate for HTTPS communication, this property specifies the criteria for it to select a valid client authentication certificate.

Use the following keywords to search the certificate Subject Name or Subject Alternative Name:

  • Subject: Find an exact match
  • SubjectStr: Find a partial match

Examples:

  • CCMCERTSEL="Subject:computer1.contoso.com": Search for a certificate with an exact match to the computer name computer1.contoso.com in the Subject Name or the Subject Alternative Name.

  • CCMCERTSEL="SubjectStr:contoso.com": Search for a certificate that contains contoso.com in the Subject Name or the Subject Alternative Name.

Use the SubjectAttr keyword to search for the Object Identifier (OID) or distinguished name attributes in the Subject Name or Subject Alternative Name.

Examples:

  • CCMCERTSEL="SubjectAttr:2.5.4.11 = Computers": Search for the organizational unit attribute expressed as an object identifier and named Computers.

  • CCMCERTSEL="SubjectAttr:OU = Computers": Search for the organizational unit attribute expressed as a distinguished name, and named Computers.

Important

If you use the Subject Name, the Subject keyword is case-sensitive, and the SubjectStr keyword is case-insensitive.

If you use the Subject Alternative Name, both the Subject and the SubjectStr keywords are case-insensitive.

For the complete list of attributes that you can use for certificate selection, see Supported attribute values for PKI certificate selection criteria.

If more than one certificate matches the search, and you set CCMFIRSTCERT to 1, then the client installer selects the certificate with the longest validity period.

CCMCERTSTORE

If the client installer can't locate a valid certificate in the default Personal certificate store for the computer, use this property to specify an alternate certificate store name.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert CCMCERTSTORE="ConfigMgr"

CCMDEBUGLOGGING

This property enables debug logging when the client installs. This property causes the client to log low-level information for troubleshooting. Avoid using this property in production sites. Excessive logging can occur, which might make it difficult to find relevant information in the log files. Also enable CCMENABLELOGGING.

Supported values:

  • 0: Turn off debug logging (default)
  • 1: Turn on debug logging

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMDEBUGLOGGING=1

For more information, see About log files.

CCMENABLELOGGING

Configuration Manager enables logging by default.

Supported values:

  • TRUE: Turn on logging (default)
  • FALSE: Turn off logging

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMENABLELOGGING=TRUE

For more information, see About log files.

CCMEVALINTERVAL

The frequency in minutes at which the client health evaluation tool (ccmeval.exe) runs. Specify an integer value from 1 to 1440. By default, ccmeval runs once a day (1440 minutes).

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMEVALINTERVAL=1440

For more information on client health evaluation, see Monitor clients.

CCMEVALHOUR

The hour during the day when the client health evaluation tool (ccmeval.exe) runs. Specify an integer value from 0 (midnight) to 23 (11:00 PM). By default, ccmeval runs at midnight.

For more information on client health evaluation, see Monitor clients.

CCMFIRSTCERT

If you set this property to 1, the client selects the PKI certificate with the longest validity period.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert CCMFIRSTCERT=1

CCMHOSTNAME

If the client is managed over the internet, this property specifies the FQDN of the internet-based management point.

Don't specify this option with the installation property of SMSSITECODE=AUTO. Directly assign internet-based clients to an internet-based site.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert CCMHOSTNAME="SMSMP01.corp.contoso.com"

This property can specify the address of a cloud management gateway (CMG). To get the value for this property, use the following steps:

  • Create a CMG. For more information, see Set up a CMG.

  • On an active client, open a Windows PowerShell command prompt as an administrator.

  • Run the following command:

    (Get-WmiObject -Namespace Root\Ccm\LocationServices -Class SMS_ActiveMPCandidate | Where-Object {$_.Type -eq "Internet"}).MP`
    
  • Use the returned value as-is with the CCMHOSTNAME property.

For example: ccmsetup.exe CCMHOSTNAME=CONTOSO.CLOUDAPP.NET/CCM_Proxy_MutualAuth/72057598037248100

Important

When you specify the address of a CMG for the CCMHOSTNAME property, don't append a prefix such as https://. Only use this prefix with the /mp URL of a CMG.

CCMHTTPPORT

Specifies the port for the client to use when it communicates over HTTP to site system servers. By default, this value is 80.

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMHTTPPORT=80

CCMHTTPSPORT

Specifies the port for the client to use when it communicates over HTTPS to site system servers. By default, this value is 443.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert CCMHTTPSPORT=443

CCMINSTALLDIR

Use this property to set the folder to install the Configuration Manager client files. By default, it uses %WinDir%\CCM.

Tip

Regardless of where you install the client files, it always installs the ccmcore.dll file in the %WinDir%\System32 folder. On a 64-bit OS, it installs a copy of ccmcore.dll in the %WinDir%\SysWOW64 folder. This file supports 32-bit applications that use the 32-bit version of the client APIs from the Configuration Manager SDK.

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMINSTALLDIR="C:\ConfigMgr"

CCMLOGLEVEL

Use this property to specify the level of detail to write to Configuration Manager log files.

Supported values:

  • 0: Verbose
  • 1: Default
  • 2: Warnings and errors
  • 3: Errors only

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMLOGLEVEL=0

For more information, see About log files.

CCMLOGMAXHISTORY

When a Configuration Manager log file reaches the maximum size, the client renames it as a backup and creates a new log file. This property specifies how many previous versions of the log file to keep. The default value is 1. If you set the value to 0, the client doesn't keep any log file history.

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMLOGMAXHISTORY=5

For more information, see About log files.

CCMLOGMAXSIZE

This property specifies the maximum log file size in bytes. When a log grows to the specified size, the client renames it as a history file, and creates a new one. The default size is 250,000 bytes, and the minimum size is 10,000 bytes.

Example: CCMSetup.exe CCMLOGMAXSIZE=300000 (300,000 bytes)

DISABLESITEOPT

Set this property to TRUE to block administrators from changing the assigned site in the Configuration Manager control panel.

Example: CCMSetup.exe DISABLESITEOPT=TRUE

DISABLECACHEOPT

If set to TRUE, this property disables the ability of administrative users from changing the client cache folder settings in the Configuration Manager control panel.

Example: CCMSetup.exe DISABLECACHEOPT=TRUE

DNSSUFFIX

Specify a DNS domain for clients to locate management points that you publish in DNS. When the client locates a management point, it tells the client about other management points in the hierarchy. This behavior means that the management point that the client finds from DNS can be any one in the hierarchy.

Note

You don't have to specify this property if the client is in the same domain as a published management point. In that case, the client's domain is automatically used to search DNS for management points.

For more information about DNS publishing as a service location method for Configuration Manager clients, see Service location and how clients determine their assigned management point.

Note

By default, Configuration Manager doesn't enable DNS publishing.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSSITECODE=ABC DNSSUFFIX=contoso.com

FSP

Specify the fallback status point that receives and processes state messages sent by Configuration Manager clients.

For more information, see Determine if you need a fallback status point.

Example: CCMSetup.exe FSP=SMSFP01

IGNOREAPPVVERSIONCHECK

If you set this property to TRUE, the client installer doesn't check the minimum required version of Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V).

Important

If you install the Configuration Manager client without installing App-V, you can't deploy virtual applications.

Example: CCMSetup.exe IGNOREAPPVVERSIONCHECK=TRUE

NOTIFYONLY

When you enable this property, the client reports status, but doesn't remediate problems that it finds.

Example: CCMSetup.exe NOTIFYONLY=TRUE

For more information, see How to configure client status.

PROVISIONTS

Starting in version 2002, use this property to start a task sequence on a client after it successfully registers with the site.

For example, you provision a new Windows 10 device with Windows Autopilot, auto-enroll it to Microsoft Intune, and then install the Configuration Manager client for co-management. If you specify this new option, the newly provisioned client then runs a task sequence. This process gives you additional flexibility to install applications and software updates, or configure settings.

Use the following process:

  1. Create a non-OS deployment task sequence to install apps, install software updates, and configure settings.

  2. Deploy this task sequence to the new built-in collection, All Provisioning Devices. Note the task sequence deployment ID, for example PRI20001.

  3. Install the Configuration Manager client on a device, and include the following property: PROVISIONTS=PRI20001. Set the value of this property as the task sequence deployment ID.

    • If you're installing the client from Intune during co-management enrollment, see How to prepare internet-based devices for co-management.

      Note

      This method may have additional prerequisites. For example, enrolling the site to Azure Active Directory, or creating a content-enabled cloud management gateway.

After the client installs and properly registers with the site, it starts the referenced task sequence. If client registration fails, the task sequence won't start.

RESETKEYINFORMATION

If a client has the wrong Configuration Manager trusted root key, it can't contact a trusted management point to receive the new trusted root key. Use this property to remove the old trusted root key. This situation may occur when you move a client from one site hierarchy to another. This property applies to clients that use HTTP and HTTPS client communication. For more information, see Planning for the trusted root key.

Example: CCMSetup.exe RESETKEYINFORMATION=TRUE

SITEREASSIGN

Enables automatic site reassignment for client upgrades when used with SMSSITECODE=AUTO.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSSITECODE=AUTO SITEREASSIGN=TRUE

SMSCACHEDIR

Specifies the location of the client cache folder on the client computer. By default, the cache location is %WinDir%\ccmcache.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSCACHEDIR="C:\Temp"

Use this property with the SMSCACHEFLAGS property to control the client cache folder location. For example, to install the client cache folder on the largest available client disk drive: CCMSetup.exe SMSCACHEDIR=Cache SMSCACHEFLAGS=MAXDRIVE

SMSCACHEFLAGS

Use this property to specify further installation details for the client cache folder. You can use SMSCACHEFLAGS properties individually or in combination separated by semicolons (;).

If you don't include this property:

  • The client installs the cache folder according to the SMSCACHEDIR property
  • The folder isn't compressed
  • The client uses the SMSCACHESIZE property as the size limit in MB of the cache

When you upgrade an existing client, the client installer ignores this property.

Values for the SMSCACHEFLAGS property

  • PERCENTDISKSPACE: Set the cache size as a percentage of the total disk space. If you specify this property, also set SMSCACHESIZE to a percentage value.

  • PERCENTFREEDISKSPACE: Set the cache size as a percentage of the free disk space. If you specify this property, also set SMSCACHESIZE as a percentage value. For example, the disk has 10 MB free, and you specify SMSCACHESIZE=50. The client installer sets the cache size to 5 MB. You can't use this property with the PERCENTDISKSPACE property.

  • MAXDRIVE: Install the cache on the largest available disk. If you specify a path with the SMSCACHEDIR property, the client installer ignores this value.

  • MAXDRIVESPACE: Install the cache on the disk drive with the most free space. If you specify a path with the SMSCACHEDIR property, the client installer ignores this value.

  • NTFSONLY: Only install the cache on an NTFS-formatted disk drive. If you specify a path with the SMSCACHEDIR property, the client installer ignores this value.

  • COMPRESS: Store the cache in a compressed form.

  • FAILIFNOSPACE: If there's insufficient space to install the cache, remove the Configuration Manager client.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSCACHEFLAGS=NTFSONLY;COMPRESS

SMSCACHESIZE

Important

Client settings are available for specifying the client cache folder size. The addition of those client settings effectively replaces using SMSCACHESIZE as a client.msi property to specify the size of the client cache. For more information, see the client settings for cache size.

When you upgrade an existing client, the client installer ignores this setting. The client also ignores the cache size when it downloads software updates.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSCACHESIZE=100

Note

If you reinstall a client, you can't use SMSCACHESIZE or SMSCACHEFLAGS to set the cache size to be smaller than it was previously. The previous size is the minimum value.

SMSCONFIGSOURCE

Use this property to specify the location and order that the client installer checks for configuration settings. It's a string of one or more characters, each defining a specific configuration source:

  • R: Check for configuration settings in the registry.

    For more information, see Provision client installation properties.

  • P: Check for configuration settings in the installation properties from the command line.

  • M: Check for existing settings when you upgrade an older client.

  • U: Upgrade the installed client to a newer version and use the assigned site code.

By default, the client installer uses PU. It first checks the installation properties (P) and then the existing settings (U).

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSCONFIGSOURCE=RP

SMSMP

Specifies an initial management point for the Configuration Manager client to use.

Important

If the management point only accepts client connections over HTTPS, prefix the management point name with https://.

Examples:

  • CCMSetup.exe SMSMP=smsmp01.contoso.com

  • CCMSetup.exe SMSMP=https://smsmp01.contoso.com

SMSPUBLICROOTKEY

If the client can't get the Configuration Manager trusted root key from Active Directory Domain Services, use this property to specify the key. This property applies to clients that use HTTP and HTTPS communication. For more information, see Planning for the trusted root key.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSPUBLICROOTKEY=<keyvalue>

Tip

Get the value for the site's trusted root key from the mobileclient.tcf file on the site server. For more information, see Pre-provision a client with the trusted root key by using a file.

SMSROOTKEYPATH

Use this property to reinstall the Configuration Manager trusted root key. It specifies the full path and name of a file that contains the trusted root key. This property applies to clients that use HTTP and HTTPS client communication. For more information, see Planning for the trusted root key.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSROOTKEYPATH=C:\folder\trk

SMSSIGNCERT

Specifies the full path and name of the exported self-signed certificate on the site server. The site server stores this certificate in the SMS certificate store. It has the Subject name Site Server and the friendly name Site Server Signing Certificate.

Example: CCMSetup.exe /UsePKICert SMSSIGNCERT=C:\folder\smssign.cer

SMSSITECODE

This property specifies a Configuration Manager site to which you assign the client. This value can either be a three-character site code or the word AUTO. If you specify AUTO, or don't specify this property, the client attempts to determine its site assignment from Active Directory Domain Services or from a specified management point. To enable AUTO for client upgrades, also set SITEREASSIGN=TRUE.

Note

If you also specify an internet-based management point with the CCMHOSTNAME property, don't use AUTO with SMSSITECODE. Directly assign the client to its site by specifying the site code.

Example: CCMSetup.exe SMSSITECODE=XZY
