How to change Configuration Manager Hardware Inventory Schedule Client Setting

Today I tried to modify Hardware Inventory Schedule client setting and it didn’t work. First I thought that I did something wrong or the cmdlet is broken. Here is the cmdlet Verbose output


Then I thought that, lets disable the HW client setting and then enable the HW client setting with correct schedule and Bingo it worked correctly.

If you compare the verbose outputs, then you will see the difference – first time it didn’t query the SMS_SCI_ClientComp WMI instance but second time it did.



Now If I try to modify the schedule again I don’t need to disable the HW setting. I tested this on Configuration Manager 2012 R2 CU1 lab.
