Application Persistence policies for Microsoft SCCM

Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is a system management software product that lets IT administrators manage their Windows devices by performing tasks remotely, such as:

  • Deploying operating systems, software applications, and software updates
  • Monitoring and reconciling compliance settings
  • Monitoring hardware and software inventory

The solution requires the installation of the SCCM client on the organization's devices.

You can activate an Application Persistence policy to collect information about the functional status of the SCCM clients installed on your Windows devices and view the results in reports. You can also configure the policy to attempt to repair or reinstall the client.

IMPORTANT  If you select one of the repair options when SCCM Repair is enabled in your Classic Account Settings or on a device's Device Summary page, the repair and reinstall features of Application Persistence won't be enabled on the device. To take advantage of the repair and reinstall capabilities available in Application Persistence, we recommend that you disable SCCM Repair in Classic Account Settings. For more information about disabling (Classic) SCCM Repair, refer to the Absolute User Guide.
