Trigger SCCM Configuration Baseline Evaluation with Run script feature

Here’s the Powershell script we want to use to evaluate all of the baselines deployed to the machines in a device collection. If you just want to evaluate a specific one you need to modify the script.

$Baselines = Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $env:COMPUTERNAME -Namespace root\ccm\dcm -Class SMS_DesiredConfiguration
$Baselines | % { 
([wmiclass]"\\$env:COMPUTERNAME\root\ccm\dcm:SMS_DesiredConfiguration").TriggerEvaluation($_.Name, $_.Version)

First off all, lets create a script

Copy the or import the powershell script

Approve the script you just created.

Over at the client you can see that we have a Baseline that hasn’t been evaluated yet

Jumping back to the ConfigMgr console we find the device collection we want to run the script against and then right click and choose “Run Script” and go through the wizard

Under Client operations we can see that the operation has started

And under monitoring and “Script Status” we see that the evaluation has completed on the client.

and finally over at the client we see that the Baseline has been evaluated.

That’s all for now and until next time, cheers !
