Customize the Sccm 2007 console with additional actions

One of the customization steps no Configmgr administrator should be without, is a set of additional right-click actions.

My personal favorite set, is the set from Rick Houchins, which you can find here:

After you launch the install you need to choose between a server or workstation install

If you install the tools on the server, than the rest is simple next, next finish-follow the wizard stuff.

If you install the tools on a workstation than you still need to fill out the Site code, Site server and management point.

Once installed you will see the configmgr console tools installed in the Add/remove programs control panel snap-in

On the configmgr console you will see a couple of new actions availabe:

You can find these additional actions in the following spots:

  • On Each collection in the tree & details pane
  • On each collection member in the details pane
  • On advertisement instances in the details pane
  • On the Software updates nade in the tree & details pane

 

These tools can make the life of any sms admin a whole lot easier.

 

This concludes yet another step in customizing the sccm admin console.

Stay tuned, for the next post when we start doing the customization deep dive.

Enjoy.
