As a System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) administrator, you may encounter various issues during the installation of the SCCM client agent.
While some of these issues can be easily resolved, others require deep troubleshooting.
In this blog post, we will be focusing on the “ccmsetup is exiting with return code 7” error and its causes, as well as how to fix it.
What Causes “ccmsetup Is Exiting With Return Code 7″ Error?
The “ccmsetup is exiting with return code 7” error occurs when the SCCM client agent installation fails due to a pending system reboot.
This error is logged in the ccmsetup.log file and is seen at the end of the installation process.
The issue can also be caused by the .NET Framework installer, which requests a reboot to complete the installation. The return code 7 in the ccmsetup.log file indicates that a reboot is required for the installation to complete successfully.
How To Fix “ccmsetup Is Exiting With Return Code 7” Error:
To fix the “ccmsetup is exiting with return code 7” error, you simply need to reboot the client machine.
After the reboot, the SCCM client agent installation should complete successfully and the Configuration Manager Client Actions tab should show all the action cycles.
If the issue persists even after rebooting the machine, you may need to check for pending system updates, check for .NET Framework version installed, or install any pending updates.
