Cannot connect?



Forgive me if this is well-trodden ground, but we recently installed SCCM 2012 (were previously a SCCM 2007 shop and used/loved Client Center successfully for many years).

However, upon successful completion of the CM12 install, we grabbed the new CM12 compatible version of Client Center and are having issues connecting. All our workstations and servers are successfully deployed with the CM12 client and SCEP. We can "remote control" and RDP via the Admin Console, but using Client Center an attempting to connect to a given workstation (or server) gives connection errors.

What are we missing? Or what BASIC installation instructions/pitfalls/common issues documentation did we miss? Client Center presumably should find our site code and isn't even doing that.

Any thoughts?

  • Enable and Configure WinRM (Command: winrm quickconfig)
  • Test if you can connect the target computer with powershell remoting (Open Powershell and enter:
    Enter-PSSession computername)
  • You must have local Admin rights on the target systems.
