Client Actions: Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle

The Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle tool re-evaluates the requirement rules for all deployments. For applications that are required but not installed, executing the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle will prompt ConfigMgr to trigger a re-install. The default ConfigMgr runtime value is 7 days.

How it does it:

This tool completes this action by using remote WMI.

Navigate to the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle Tool by right clicking on a device, selecting Recast RCT > Client Actions > Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle:

Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle Navigation

The target device must be powered on in order to successfully initiate an Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle.

When the action is run, the following dialog box will open:

  • 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, 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 Management Server with a proxy, the service account will need administrator permissions on the remote device. One way around some of the permissions requirements and firewall rules is installing the recast agent.
