  • i tried this and the client still got installed.

    • It should work if using Client Push Method. However there are other ways that push out the client that may need to be disabled.

      What version of SCCM are you using?
      Are you pushing out the SCCM client via another avenue such as a package via SCCM or by WSUS?
