      1. Hello Mr. Koneti,
        I have just downloaded and installed the SCCM 2012 Right Click Tools. It's awesome...

        Question:
        How can I add a new action under "Client Tools" to be able to restart the Windows Management Intrumentation Service (WMI) on the selected client?

        Best regards,

        1. Hi,
          You need to play around with xml files that are stored in your configmgr installation directory\AdminConsole\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions .Look for specific xml file that does the client actions and edit the xml ,modify changes.
