Release Notes

SCCM Client Actions Tool v0.6 is currently the most stable version. However, newer version is available.

It comes with following changes since last version:
  • Added possibility to use list of found unhealthy computers as target for further actions.
  • Check for domain credential caching restrictions that prevent using alternate credentials. Prompt for temporary workaround.
  • Fixed an issue when specifying collection ID. The site server name prompt is now always shown in case corrections to server name may be needed.
  • Added support for using multiple alternate credentials.
  • Improved WMI health check and WMI fixing. Better architecture based targeting.
  • Added action "Register ATL.DLL" to agent actions.
  • Client version check no longer just matches client versions. Instead all client versions same or newer than specified are considered healthy.
  • Show duration of last action in log summary.
  • Improved logical identation of log lines.
  • Some minor bug fixes.

The tool is downloadable as a ZIP file that contains three files:
ClientActionsTool.hta – The tool itself.
Cmdkey.exe – command line tool for managing cached credentials. This is needed for alternate credentials feature when running the HTA on Windows XP. Cmdkey.exe is natively available starting from Windows Vista.
Config.ini – A configuration file for default settings. This file is not required to run the tool, but if it doesn’t exist, the tool may prompt for the data every time it’s run.

Only the HTA file is necessary to use this tool. After all, the concept of the tool is simplicity – “one click to rule them all” sort of thing. However, having cmdkey.exe in same folder is a requirement for using alternate credentials when running the HTA on Windows XP. The config.ini file improves usability by keeping default settings for every run.

Make sure you know what one or another action does before initiating it on workstations in production environment! Some of the actions have been explained in documentation.
