    Hi @Hamid Azeez

    1, It's hard to find the cause of the error with the only log entry, please check the ccmsetup.log to see if there is any more useful information.

    2, Are you using https for client connections? If so, please run MMC and navigate to Certificates (Local Computer)> Personal >Certificates to see if your device already has a client certificate?

    Besides, about client installation error 0x8004100e in HTTPS environment this similar article for your reference:

    Today we had same issue. Root cause was - it was not possible to request for new computer certificate from local certification authority.

    mmc.exe -> certificates snap-in > computer account -> under Personal\Certificates - was no certificate. When I tried to request it manually, got error, that Request was denied by certification authority.

    Root cause was - on a certification authority server (CA) there was recently installed McAfee antivirus and after CA server restart - certification service did not came up. After correction made in McAfee side - problem was over.

    So - be careful with antivirus installations on CA servers - it will impact SCCM OSD. :)
