For a recent POC (Proof of Concept) production deployment, I needed to manually install the Configuration Client on several clients in an environment where Active Directory schema had not been extended.
After working out the command line details, I thought I’d share them here. Additionally, I had enabled a Fallback Status Point (recommended).
On the client you plan to install, open a command prompt and copy/paste the following in one line (editing the site server, MP information as below):
\\<SiteServerName>\SMS_<SiteCode>\Client\ccmsetup.exe /source:"\\<SiteServerName>\SMS_<SiteCode>\Client" /MP:<SiteServerFQDN> SMSSITECODE=<SiteCode> FSP=<SiteServerName>
<SiteServerName> = Site Server NETBIOS name
<SiteServerFQDN> = Site Server FQDN
<SiteCode> = Three character site code
