SCCM 2007 Remote Control tool for Helpdesk


We have just installed SCCM 2007 and are focusing on the Remote Tools (not Rem-Assist, RDP).

Previously I have used VNC Enterprise whereby a viewr is installed on the Helpdesk analyst workstation, they launch it, type in remote hostname, user accepts, Analayst types in credentials and of you go.

How can i do similar with SCCM? I realise I can use mmc snap-in, but surely there is an admin client that behaves as VNC.

Any ideas?

Yes, just copy RC.EXE and RDPENCOM.DLL from a PC that has the admin console installed and give that to your HelpDesk staff.

They will also have to be in the remote tools access group (definable by AD group membership)
