To work around this problem, run the SMS Manual Installation Wizard (Smsman.exe) to upgrade the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2.0 client to an SMS 2003 SP1 Legacy Client. To do this, follow these steps:
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
SMS 2003 SP1 cannot push the SMS 2003 SP1 Legacy Client when the site boundaries of the secondary site do not overlap with the site boundaries of the primary site. The SMS 2003 SP1 Legacy Client must be pushed from a primary site.
When you run the Smsman.exe utility on the SMS 2.0 client computer, the SMS 2.0 client components are upgraded to SMS 2003 SP1 client components.
If you experience this problem on multiple computers, you can create an advertisement for the Smsman.exe utility to target computers that were not upgraded after you upgraded the secondary site server.
