We've done a few things other than the ordinary open the C$ share, Computer Management, etc. A couple of those are running a script to do a remote wake on lan (a script we wrote to use a machine we know that is on (on the same subnet) to send out the magic packet for the selected PC) and a script to temporarily turn off permission required (for cases where the 2 setting does not work properly). We also use the ps tools (ie. psexec, pslist) to do things like run an Inventory scan remotely when it's not working through LANDesk, bring up a realtime tasklist using pslist. You can do a lot with the console extender, so much so that LANDesk should look to make it part of the suite.
Agreed it would be nice to see this in the suite , I do use PS tools really usefull , Also desktop free windows tools from manage engine are pretty good
I like the GP update tool they have and the join unjoin , Not strictly using right click extender but its nice to have all the tools you use in one menu
Makes for a long list but its nice to have all the info in one screen
