Re-run advertisement in SCCM 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've migrated our 2007 installation to the new SCCM 2012. Previously, if you needed to re-run a advertisement for a specific computer or collection, you could run the "re-run advertisement" command. I'm unable to locate a similar command or way to do this in 2012. Any clues? Do we need to convert all of our packages to applications? I'm a bit confused. :)

  • In ConfigMgr 2007 Rerun functionality just creates a new mandatory assignment with ASAP scheduling. However in CM12 it's not really necessary considering the new state based deployment etc. In the terms of packages you could create a new deployment for the package without deleting the old one, or just modify the scheduling and add a new one with ASAP settings.

  • It depends on why you need to re-run something.  If the script or program really installs an application, then you can use the state based application model to make sure the required application gets re-installed should it be somehow removed (on a configurable application evaluation schedule).  That feature can also be used to 'retry' when tweaking requirement rules or detection logic.  If the re-run is to correct configuration drift or a detectable setting problem on the client, consider using settings management.

  • Note that using the re-run in 2007 also flips the program to Always Rerun from the default setting of Rerun if Previous Failed in addition to creating a new mandatory schedule.
