    • Include domain controllers: If this item is selected, then the Configuration Manager 2007 client will be installed to any domain controllers in the targeted resources.

    Note

    If you have configured client push installation to install to domain controllers on the General tab of the Client Push Installation Properties dialog box then this item will be automatically selected and grayed out.

    • Include only clients in this site's boundaries: If this item is selected, then any targeted computers must be in this Configuration Manager 2007 site boundaries to install the client software.

    Note

    If no boundaries are defined for this Configuration Manager 2007 site then this item will be unavailable.

    • Include subcollections: If this item is selected and you are targeting the client push installation to a collection, then any subcollections of this collection will also be targeted with the Configuration Manager 2007 client.

    Note

    If you are targeting client push installation to a single computer or to the results obtained from running a query then this option will be unavailable.
