SCCM 2007

Force SCCM 2012 Deployment

Sometimes you want to immediately deploy (install) a package and you don’t want to wait for the SCCM agent to start the task.

They are multiple ways to do this, one of them is to use the tools described in my previous posts.

The other way is to go the configuration menu of the client, configuration manager and go to “evaluatiecycles voor installatie van toepassingen” (dutch) and click Nu Uitvoeren (also dutch)

In English it’s called Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle.
