Run mgspolicy.exe -t Machine silently on Client Machines?

Jump to solution

Hi I have a small population of machines which are not uploading inventory. It's a small population but significant 13% (Windows and Macs). I have searched this forum and have noticed that rerunning the policy download can help (mgspolicy.exe -t Machine). And in fact this is working great on all my tests. So now I want to deploy this command to my machines that are not updating. Here's the problem. When I run mgspolicy.exe -t machine, a Flexera Window pops up. I can not mass deploy this command and have a Window pop up on hundreds of machines. I tried using the following switches to see if there is a silent option -h /h /? /help but nothing comes up. Is there a way for me to run this command silently or at least minimized? I am using SCCM for my Windows Machines and Jamf for Macs.

Try adding -o UILevel=Quiet to the command line:

mgspolicy.exe -t Machine -o UILevel=Quiet

See the following page for more information about the UILevel preference: UserInteractionLevel (installation component)
