SMS Manual Client Discovery and Installation Overview

Any supported computer can become a Systems Management Server (SMS) client by running the The Systems Management Installation Wizard (SMSMan.exe). The only requirement is that the potential client have a network connection to an SMS logon point and use a compatible language.

SMSMan.exe exists on all SMS logon points in the platform.bin\00000409 directory. A potential or existing client can log on to an SMS logon point and run SMSMan.exe. Alternatively, SMSMan.exe can be run from any of the following locations:

Running SMSMan.exe has the same effect on the client as running Smsls.bat; the same files are installed on the client in the same locations.

Note   For NetWare bindery, the command syntax is SMSMAN /b and for NetWare NDS, the command syntax is SMSMAN /n. In either case, you must explicitly specify the bindery location and volume, or the NDS tree, in the Systems Management Installation Wizard screen.
