Client Actions: Message Cache Cleanup

This tool clears State Messages that are cached on the ConfigMgr client.

How it does it

This tool completes this action by using remote WMI.


Navigate to the State Message Cache Cleanup Tool by right clicking on a device, selecting Recast RCT > Client Actions > State Message Cache Cleanup:

State Message Cache Cleanup Navigation


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.
