SMS 2003 Advanced Client Installs Hotfixes or Redistributable Components During Installation Process

Client push may not work with a local account on Windows Vista

If you configure a local account in the SMS client push client installation property, it may not work for Vista in domain even if this local account has local admin permission on Vista. This is because Windows Vista in a domain does not allow local accounts, except the administrator account, to connect to its admin$ share. You can use a domain account with local admin permission to connect to Vista's admin$ share.

WORKAROUND:   Use a domain account with local admin permission in SMS client push client installation property.
