SCCM 2012 Cross-Platform: Access Denied Message When Installing the Cross-Platform Client (even as root)

I was installing the Linux client on 64-bit SUSE Enterprise Linux Server recently and using the standard syntax (shown below);

install –mp ‘mymp.contoso.com’ –sitecode ICG ccm-SLES11x64.1.0.0.4008.tar

To my surprise, the install script returned the following error message:

-bash: ./install: Permission denied

The Solution

To work around this issue, give the interpreter a bit more information about what you are doing by adding ‘/bin/bash’ to the beginning of your command line (providing the path to Bash on the system), like so:

/bin/bash install –mp ‘mymp.contoso.com’ –sitecode ICG ccm-SLES11x64.1.0.0.4008.tar

WIth that addition, the ConfigMgr cross-platform client install script ran as expected!
