How to push software with sccm

One of the challenges with deploying software on OSD (Operating System Deployment) is getting the software to install and run silently as well as setting up a package or installer correctly. This post will show you how to push software with SCCM.

As a software and hardware reseller, you’re selling more than just licenses — you’re selling solutions! One of your main solutions is software: updates, installations, troubleshooting, etc. This can be delivered via physical media or over the web. The most popular method of software deployment is through Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (formerly known as Systems Management Server).

To push software with SCCM, you must first add a package to your distribution point. This can be done by right-clicking on the package, selecting Add to Distribution Points, and choosing the correct distribution point.

The next step is to create advertisements and deploy them to a collection. You can do this by going to Software Center > Overview > Create Application in the Software Center console. Then, choose whether you want to create an application for all users or only for specific users.

After you’ve created your advertisement, you’ll need to deploy it by going to Software Center > Overview > Deploy Applications in the Software Center console. Then, select the appropriate collections where you want the application deployed and click OK.

If you want to push software with SCCM, there are a few steps you’ll need to take. First, you’ll need to set up an application catalog, which is where users will be able to choose from a list of available applications. This can be done by going into Administration > Site Configuration > Sites.

Next, you’ll need to create a deployment type for the app you want users to install. This can be done by going into Software Library > Application Management > Deployment Types.

Then, go back into Administration > Site Configuration > Sites and click on the site that has been created. Then click on Client Installation Settings under Collections and choose Create Manually and select the deployment type you created earlier (it should be called something like “Deployment Type Name”). Now click OK and then Save Changes.

Finally, make sure that a user group has access to this installation configuration (you can do this by going back into Administration > Site Configuration > Sites and clicking on Client Installation Settings under Collections again).

Step 3: Authorize to Computers and Control Software

From the Deployment Settings, set the Action to install and the Purpose to Available. Click to check the box named “Require administrator approval if users request this application.” This will make the software available to the end user but will need administrator permission to install it.

To finish the task, click on “Next”. The software in now deployed to the end user. Click on close to exit the program. You can check the details of deployment on the deployment completion page.
