SCCM2012 Tools : Client Context Menu Tools

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

Recently I was asked to adjust my Client Right Click Tools to the new SCCM version (System Center Configuration Manager 2012), quite a challenge, but I decided to give it a try.

I had to 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 device in a collection invokes the SCCM Tools ribbon   The old report mechanism was removed, and the SQL report server took it's...

SCCM Tools : Client Context Menu Tools

Friday, March 23, 2012

My SCCM right click tool collection (those I collected and those I wrote) were based on VBS,Batch and HTA, so Shay Levy my friend and a PowerShell Guru suggested that I should write a new set of tools based on PowerShell and Windows Forms. I could not say no to such a challenge so I began working on a new project. My right click toolkit is divided to three sections : Site Tools, Collection Tools and Systems Tools. In this post I will discuss the client (system) tools. ...

SCCM Tools : Collection Context Menu Tools

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true}; SCCM/SMS has a very nice feature enabling you to extend its context menu. The first extension that I used was 'SMSSEND.VBS' for SMS 2003, it was a very useful toolkit which encouraged me to learn how to add some tools of my own. Since then many more tools were published on the net, a very good tools pack can be downloaded from Rick Houchins Blog. My SCCM tool collection (those I collected and those I wrote) were based on VBS,Batch and HTA, so Shay Levy my friend and...

Sunday, November 6, 2011

var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true}; previous post - SCCM 2012 Beta 2 changes overview Part 5 – Inventory Application Deployment A new object was added to the SCCM console , named “Applications”, a very interesting replacement to the old deployment mechanism. The new system offers an alternative way to deploy various applications types (EXE,Script,MSI…). The new Software Catalog, the jewel in the crown, serves as deployment web site and can ease administrator workload – users can do the work themselves.  Nevertheless the old package deployment was not removed and was subject to...

SCCM 2012 Beta 2 changes overview Part 5 – Inventory

Monday, August 8, 2011

previous post - SCCM 2012 Beta 2 changes overview Part 4 – RemoteTools In the past I extended my SCCM 2007 hardware inventory, following Microsoft's procedure, which was not very intuitive and required manual edit of the 'SMS_def.mof' text file. Adding new hardware classes to my inventory was more complex because I needed to find the right WMI class, edit another text file (Configuration.mof) and check my file structure with 'mofcomp.exe' command. SCCM 2012 offers a much easier way to do this via the user interface: Enabling Device Properties ...

SCCM 2012 Beta 2 changes overview Part 4 – Remote Tools

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true}; previous post - SCCM 2012 Beta 2 changes overview Part 3 – discovery SCCM is a system management enterprise application and among other features should, in my opinion, provide a strong and powerful remote tools solution. Unfortunately, SCCM 2012 is quite disappointing in that respect (In comparison to other tools), BUT , nevertheless, some features are worth noting… Client definitions The most significant change is the ability to create several different agent settings. You can create a new Remote tools definitions object , as an addition...
