The Setup wizard can run only on an SMS site server. However, your SMS environment may contain more than one SMS site server in the SMS hierarchy. In such a scenario, it is recommended that you run the SMS 2003 R2 Scan Tool for Vulnerability Assessment Setup wizard on a primary SMS site server that is highest in the hierarchy, such as a central site server. Alternatively, the SMS site server that you choose must match your SMS management scope and have the highest coverage of all SMS client computers that you want to manage in your environment. Then the SMS objects that you create (collections, packages, and programs) will automatically flow down your site hierarchy.

Although the scan tool needs to be installed only once in the hierarchy, you must run a SQL script on all SMS databases that return vulnerability assessment information for queries or reports. It is recommended that you run it on all SMS databases in your SMS hierarchy.
