Configuration Manager support center

Yesterday, Microsoft released an beta version of a new support tool for Configuration Manager called Configuration Manager Support Center. Which at the moment can be downloaded from Microsoft connect –> http://connect.microsoft.com/ConfigurationManagervnext/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=52192

This tool supports every OS that configuration Manager 2012 R2 supports. It requires that you install the tool on a system that has configuration manager client installed or you will get messages that you cannot connect. It also requires .Net 4.5 installed as well in order to run.

The tool gives us a good overview of logs, WMI, certificates, registry of a client so first we have to start a collection of the different components.
