Hey guys,
 Question, we don't have the SCCM right click tools working in our environment, some complexities around the multiple domains in use, and heavily locked down clients?, IE: our SCCM Primary and x 2 secondary site and x MP servers resides on domain 1, all our workstations on domain 2,
 Is there a script or utility I can use to invoke machine policy retrieval remotely on multiple workstations?

I may be misreading your issue, but are you not able to Right Click on the Collection containing the devices, select Client Notification > Download Computer Policy?

From the SCCM configuration manager console, you can initiate the machine policy retrieval on multiple servers.

Open the Configuration manager console from your SCCM 2012 server --> then select the Device collection where the computer are avaiable --> right click --> click on Clinet Actions on collection --> click on machine policy retrieval and Evaluation Cycle.
