SCCM 2012 Client Push fail with error code 0x800706ba

when pushing the SCCM clients behind fire wall you may get this error:

CWmi::Connect(): ConnectServer(Namespace) failed. – 0x800706ba

This error is  because the SCCM Client uses Dynamic RPC connections for WMI (the DCOM RPC uses callback for the event receipt which chooses random ports 1024-65534.)

you need to open the following ports :

Description

UDP

TCP

Server Message Block (SMB) between the site server and client computer.

 

445

RPC endpoint mapper between the site server and the client computer.

 

135

135

RPC dynamic ports between the site server and the client computer.

 

DYNAMIC

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) from the client computer to a management point when the connection is over HTTP.

 

80

 

Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) from the client computer to a management point when the connection is over HTTPS.

443

 

check  this …Windows Firewall and Port Settings for Client Computers in Configuration Manager

sooooo you need to open the Dynamic ports on the firewall 1024-65534 which  is not very good idea …. since you only need them for client push you can coordinate with you security admin to open them on branch per branch or subnet by subnet basis for a day or so and close these ports again as soon as you finish pushing your client “at least this is how it worked for me Smile

System center configuration manager 2012 R2 (Part 12) Operating System Deployment 2/2

During the last part we have seen how to prepare our environment for OS deployment and how to capture OS we are using as reference image for the deployment .

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

NOTE:

Configuration we did during the last part of our series is only the SCCM related configuration

there is others related to DHCP and Network

DHCP:

Options 66 and 67 must be configured so that a PXE client can locate the PXE point and boot into Windows PE using our boot images

Option 66 is the PXE server name or IP

Option 67 is the file name “SMSBoot\x64\wdsnbp.com”

Network:

If your PXE Client “booting computer” and the PXE enabled DP are not in the same subnet , you have to configure IP Helper on your switch

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

Will continue by creating a new device collection for which the operating system is going to be deployed., Right click on Device Collections, click Create Device Collection.
