The client push installation account is used to connect to computers to install the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 client software. This account is only used by the client push installation method. If you do not configure an account, Configuration Manager 2007 will try to use the site system computer account. This account must have local administrator rights on every client to be installed.

If you are using the client push installation method to install the client on child sites, the account must be specified at the site which initiates the client push.

How to specify the Client Push Installation account

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Client Installation Methods.

  2. To open the Client Push Installation Properties dialog box, double-click Client Push Installation.

  3. In the Client Push Installation Properties dialog box, select the Accounts tab, and then click the New button.

  4. In the Windows User Account dialog box, specify an existing Windows domain user account and password. You can repeat this process to specify as many accounts as you want. The accounts will be used in order until one succeeds.
