SCCM2012 Tools : Collection Context Menu Tools

25/08/2012

The next phase in converting my SCCM Right Click Tools to the new SCCM version (System Center Configuration Manager 2012), is adjusting the ConfigMgr Collection Tools .

The ConfigMgr 2012 SDK , served me very well, and helped me make some interface changes as well as scripting code adjustments:

The tools can be reached from the ribbon and/or from the context menu:

Selecting a collection invokes the SCCM Tools ribbon

Now you can re-run not just advertisements, but also application deployments :

I added new collection reports to the right click tools :

A new setup page is included in the setup program – "Report Server Settings", which enables you to enter your reporter details:

    • The console automatically recognizes the site server name, so if your report server is the site server you do not have to fill in its name
    • The default port is 80
    • The default virtual report server folder name is ReportServer
  • For more information about these tools read the following post – SCCM 2007 Collection Right Click Tools

m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)

    hi

    Installed on my local machíne where I have the adminconsole 2012 installed. After installation nothing is integrated on my local adminconsole. On the Server it is working perfectly. Any idea’s why?

    I have both Console Versions installed (SCCM 2007 & SCCM 2012) and the XML-Extensions are copied to the wrong directory:

    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager Console\AdminUI\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions” (this is SCCM 2007 console)
    instead of
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions” (this is SCCM 2012 console)

    To correct this, I just copied the folders “a92615d6-9df3-49ba-a8c9-6ecb0e8b956b” and “3785759b-db2c-414e-a540-e879497c6f97” to the 2012 console folder.

    No joy installing the tools to SC 2012 R2 – ConfigMgr.
