Running Cireson’s Remote Manage App From Command Line

Cireson recently announced the free release of their Remote Manage app for System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. Within a few weeks of its release back in October there have been over 900 downloads. Wally Mead is also scheduled to give Remote Manage app webinar on 12/18!

For a V1-type release it’s pretty impressive and depends on Roger Zander’s SCCM Client Automation library. You’ll see a lot of similar functionality to Roger’s SCCM Client Center tool, which is many years in the making. At first glance I’m not seeing the typical right-click SCCM console integration offered with most of these types of tools. This made me curious if the tool could be ran with parameters so that one could immediately connect to a machine and manage it.

It’s quite simple to launch Remote Manage app to target a computer and site code. Simply execute it with two parameters (provided you installed it in the default location):

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cireson\Remote Manage app\ConfigMgrClientTools.exe "computername" "sitecode"

You could easily make your own right-click tool to launch this by following various blog posts on the web such as:

What are you waiting for? Add this to your tool belt and follow it as I’m sure there are more exciting features in this app’s future.
