Today I released a public version of my Import Computer Form. Many has been written about scripts to Import Computer Information in ConfigMgr 2012, via PowerShell, but there was never a worked-out example (like all the different HTA’s there where for the previous version). That’s why I thought it would be nice to post an example form to just simply Import Computer Information in ConfigMgr 2012. Again, like with my Approval Manager, I did NOT use the PowerShell Cmdlets for ConfigMgr 2012, but just PowerShell to WMI. The main reason for that is, still the same, that using WMI, via PowerShell, is much friendlier for remote usage.
Import Computer Form
This public version gives the user the possibility to perform the following actions, without the need of access to and/ or a locally installed ConfigMgr console:
- Fill in a Computer name.
- Fill in a MAC Address.
- Select an OS Deployment Collection.
- Import the Computer Information.
- Close the form.
This time I won’t spent to much time on specifying which rights are necessary to Import Computer Information. The reason for that is simple, as it’s been very good explained in this post on the TechNet Blogs.
As of today my Import Computer Form is publicly available via the TechNet Galleries. Please let me know what you think of the tool.
