Dependencies in Admin Arsenal


What in the hell are Dependencies?

Dependencies are files of any type that you define as “necessary to do my job”.  An easy example might be:

You want to uninstall the Microsoft SMS Advanced Client on your computers. Using Admin Arsenal’s Remote Command feature, you can do this very easily. Microsoft provides a utility to remove SMS called “CCMClean.exe”, therefore all we have to do is make certain that CCMClean.exe is a dependency in Admin Arsenal.  This way we know that CCMClean.exe will be present on the remote computers when needed.

You can add or remove dependency files via the Admin Arsenal Preferences window.

We have the option of including Dependency files when running a Remote Command.


Dependency files will be deleted from target machines after the Remote Command has completed. Obviously marking very large files as Dependencies should be avoided.
