Deployment of Console Extension


Hey Guys -

Thanks for your great work on a great app! I have a quick question - not technically an issue...:)

Despite using the app for a long time now, only today did i notice and use the option to add the console extension to the SCCM Console. I'm assuming that when clicking on that open in Client Center, it adds a few files locally to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\XmlStorage\Extensions, but so far haven't determined which ones plus don't know if that's all it does or not.

If possible, could you please explain how I could perhaps write a quick script to deploy this to a few systems which also have and use the console & Client Center?

There are two Folders for the XML File:
  • [ConsolePATH]\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\3fd01cd1-9e01-461e-92cd-94866b8d1f39\sccmclictr.xml
  • [ConsolePATH]\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\ed9dee86-eadd-4ac8-82a1-7234a4646e62\sccmclictr.xml
The XML Files are the same, you can copy it from an existing installation.

Hi Roger,

There is another location that the "register extension" has missed. It also needs to go into [ConsolePATH]\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\0770186d-ea57-4276-a46b-7344ae081b58 so that when you search a users primary device you can right click from there.

Thanks Ben,

I've added the additional Folder in ChangeSet 35066... It will become part of V1.0.2.13
