Client Actions: Software Updates Scan Cycle
Just after a software update installation completes, a scan is initiated to verify that the update is no longer required and to create a new state message that indicates the update has been installed. When the installation has finished but a restart is necessary, the state will indicate that the client computer is pending a restart.
How it does it:
This tool completes this action by using remote WMI.
Navigate to the Software Updates Scan Cycle Tool by right clicking on a device, selecting Recast RCT > Client Actions > Software Updates Scan Cycle:
When the action is run, the following dialog box will open:
The Software Updates Scan Cycle tool requires the following permissions:
- Requires the Software Updates Scan Cycle permission in the ConfigMgr Client plugin.
- This action requires that the device you're targeting has a working ConfigMgr client installed. Additionally, the user running the ConfigMgr console will need to have administrator access to the remote device (if using Recast RCT Community or a Recast Server in impersonation mode), and the remote WMI ports will need to be allowed through the firewall. If the "Ping Computer Before Running Tools" option is set, ICMP Echo will also need to be allowed through the firewall. If using a Recast Server with a service account, the service account will need administrator permissions on the remote device.
