SCCM Current Branch Installation Prerequisite Failure – Site server computer account administrative rights

Problem

Running the install for SCCM Current Branch (1702) and the Prerequisite Checker was failing on an issue with admin rights on the target SCCM Site Server.  This one was really annoying as I had double-checked everything before running the installer.

Fix

The appropriate accounts had been given admin rights to all the SCCM Site System Servers using the Restricted Groups Active Directory Group Policy setting (under Security Settings, under Windows Settings, under Computer Policies) .  The SCCM server had not been restarted since the policy was applied.

Restarting the server fixed the issue!

SCCM Current Branch Automatic Deployment Rule Will Not Run

SCCM Current Branch (1702).

Problem

Automatic Deployment Rule was running without error but not doing anything.  Downloading updates manually was working so not a problem with Internet connection etc.

Fix

The share/folder on the SCCM Site Server where the software updates were meant to download to (the Package Source folder) needed a tweak to the permissions.

Add the server SYSTEM account to the permissions for the folder and the share with the appropriate rights to be able to write to both.
