As title really, what would be the best way to kick off the software inventory remotely on a machine?

I'm guessing there's some WMI shenanigans that'll do it, anyone tried?

I'm using the free tool SMS console Additions v1.3. This has a number of SMS shell scripts which can help with SMS admin tasks including SW and HW Inventory. Although I haven't exactly checked these 2 triggers.

This evidently works for SMS 2003:

advertise cscript something.vbs //B where something.vbs is:
' vbs script to be run locally on the machine
Set cpApplet = CreateObject("CPAPPLET.CPAppletMgr")
Set actions = cpApplet.GetClientActions
For Each action In actions
If Instr(action.Name,"Software Inventory") > 0 Then
End if
