Manage Computers via SCCM console

Have you wanted to manage a machine from the SCCM console only to find there is no tool to do it. So you must lauch Computer Manager and then connect to the remote machine. Well here is the simple right click tool to help you do just that.

<ActionDescription Class="Group" DisplayName="ConfigMgr" MnemonicDisplayName="ConfigMgr Tools" Description="ConfigMgr Tools" SqmDataPoint="100">
<ActionDescription Class="Executable" DisplayName="Computer Management" MnemonicDisplayName="Computer Management" Description="Manage remove computer">

Place this in the query node, machine node etc and restart the console. Now you can right click on a machine and select Manager Computer. Granted this will only work if your account has the appropriate permissions to the machine.
