Deploying a Configuration Manager Linux Client

In this post I will walk you through the steps of installing the Linux client, and ensuring the client is registered with Configuration Manager. Lastly I will walk through creating a custom device collection for the Linux systems.

In this example I am running Ubuntu 14.04.1. I have joined it to my domain.

Installing the Linux Client for Configuration Manager

You will need to download and extract the executables from Microsoft for the System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager Linux or Apple client.


Once you have downloaded and extracted the files copy over 2 files. You will need the install and the ccm-Universalx64.tar in order to install the client.

Once these files are copied over, open a terminal shell as a SU and run the following command:

./install -mp <computer> -sitecode <sitecode> <property #1> <property #2> <client installation package>

The install will take a few moments to run, and should complete successfully.


Creating a Linux Devices Collection


In this final step I am going to show you how to create a collection query for your Linux Systems. This is a simple query where the client Edition for Linux systems in this case = “13”.


The end result should show all your Linux Devices within the collection.
