Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle for Collections

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

This action can be run on device collections, or with a similar tool designed for single and multi-selected devices.

To run this tool:

1. In your Configuration Manager console, right-click on a device collection.

2. Click Right Click Tools > Client Actions on Collection > Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle.

NOTE: The target devices must be powered on to successfully initiate an Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle.

When the action is run, the following dialog box opens:

  • Remote WMI ports must 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.
