適用於: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

Desktop computers and laptops that are managed by Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and synchronize with mobile devices via Mobile Device Center on the Windows Vista operating system or ActiveSync (Microsoft Windows XP and earlier) can install the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 mobile device client on connected mobile devices. For more information about mobile device synchronization, see the mobile device synchronization web page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=81724).

To use Configuration Manager 2007 software distribution to install the mobile device client, you must extend the hardware inventory on Configuration Manager 2007 client computer and add a collection for computers that connect to mobile devices. For more information, see How to Distribute Inventory Extension to Client Desktop Computers for Mobile Device Management.

Once Configuration Manager can inventory computer clients that synchronize with mobile devices, an advertisement can target those computers with installation files. When the mobile device next synchronizes with the desktop computer, the mobile device management client is installed on the mobile device.

After the package has been distributed to the client computer, the mobile device management client will be installed the next time the mobile device is docked to synchronize. For more information, see How to Verify Mobile Device Client Installation or Upgrade.

A status message is generated when the client transfer program attempts to install, uninstall, upgrade, or verify the settings of the mobile device client. The status message tells the Configuration Manager 2007 administrator whether or not the operation was successful and includes appropriate failure codes if the operation failed. These status messages can be viewed in the Configuration Manager 2007 Administrator console in System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / System Status / Package Status.
