SCCM (ConfigMgr) Client Health Tool

While looking into a Configuration Manager 2007 client issue the other day I stumbled across a new project on Codeplex.

Not sure on the real name of the person running this project as he/she is only listed as dethomson.
*Edit 08/03/2011 - Dan Thomson is the guy with the brains*

The tool looks like one of the most comprehensive ones I've seen yet to date and I'll be putting some testing in on it soon.  Once I have I'll feedback here on it, but if it does work like the documentation says it should, this should be one killer tool for any SCCM admin to have!

I hope this project gains momentum and doesn't just get abandoned in Beta as like I said, this has great potential.

It's me (Dan Thomson) running the Health Check Tool project on CodePlex. It will soon have another slight update taking it to beta version .09 -which will be the release candidate. Feel free to send me an email if you need assistance.

Thanks Dan, I'm hoping to put some time aside this week for some initial tests, the WMI scripted repair is the bit I really can't wait to see in action!

Did you ever get this working?

To be honest, I never got round to finishing the testing of this as I changed jobs shortly after.

Since in my new role I'm focusing on mainly new solutions and probably 2012 based, I'm not sure if I'll get the chance to re-visit this which is a shame as it looked really good.

If you're having a problem, it would be a good idea to try asking a question on the codeplex site.

Is the SCCM 2007 health check tool still available. This would be useful for us before we move to SCCM CB
