Install the CM Client (Endpoint Management Tools - Windows)

This article applies to: Endpoint Management Tools


This page is intended for IT support professionals. End users should contact local IT support.

Once the client is installed on a workstation, the workstation

  • sends inventory data to the CM Current Branch servers
    and
  • can be managed via the console.

We suggest that you copy the GPOs listed on this page to your OU and apply them from there.

You can install the client either through applying a GPO (which installs the client on all members of the OU) or manually on each individual workstation.

Group Policy Installation

  1. Configure firewall settings to allow the Endpoint Management Tools - SCCM service to function correctly.
  2. The GPO CIT-IDM-MachineCertificateAutoEnrollment needs to be applied to the OU that the clients are in. This gets the clients enrolled in the Client Authentication Certificate necessary to facilitate the PKI communication.
  3. The GPO MD-InstallCMClient-JSandy-Startup-1606 needs to be applied to the OU that the clients will be in. 

Manual Installation

  1. Configure firewall settings to allow the Endpoint Management Tools - SCCM service to function correctly.
  2. The GPO CIT-IDM-MachineCertificateAutoEnrollment needs to be applied to the OU that the clients are in. This gets the clients enrolled in the Client Authentication Certificate necessary to facilitate the PKI communication.
