VBS Script To Change A Remote SMS/ConfigMgr Clients Cache Size

This VBS script will take a local or remote machine name from an input box and then will prompt you to enter a Cache size in MB that you want to change the Cache size to. The script will then stop and then start the SMS Agent Host by Name (CCMExec) to apply the change without the need to restart the service manually as is required when modifying the cache.

Note: The Put method (Put_) is designed to be used when you either create or update a WMI instance or a class object and writes the changes to the specified WMI repository.



strComputer = InputBox ("Enter Machine Name")
intCacheSize = InputBox ("Enter New Cache Size (MB)")
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts://" & strComputer & "/root/ccm/SoftMgmtAgent")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from CacheConfig")
For Each objItem in colItems
objItem.Size = intCacheSize
objItem.Put_ 0
MsgBox "The Cache On " & UCase(strComputer) & " Located At: " & objItem.Location & " Will Be Changed To: " & objItem.Size & " MB"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name = ‘CCMExec’")
For Each objItem in colItems
Wscript.Sleep 10000
MsgBox "Done"
