In this post I will show you a little tool I created that allows you to quicly run Configuration Manager Client actions from the client computer.

Why this ?

Recently a client asked me to create a tool to use on nomad client in order to refresh Configuration Manager from the client.He wanted to refresh many actions in one click, instead of going in the Configuration Manager client, then client on Actions and Run and Run... as below:All actions were located in an XML file with an Active tag to set to True or False.

Context ?

An icon is located in the systray bar, as below:User click on the icon or do a right-click then click on CM force Update, It will refresh selected Configuration Manager actions.

The XML fileTo choose which action you want to update or not, change the XML node from False to True.

All nodes configured with Active status to True will be refresh once you click on the icon.
