Execute commands locally on the managed device.

Sometimes, it just isn't possible to do things remotely, you need to be "on" the device to perform your operation.

The script mechanism does just that. It executes a command, such as a powershell script, on the device, relaying the script output back to netPrefect for processing.

This mechanism can be used to monitor Exchange 2010, with a complex powershell script.

This mechanism is only available to run command locally to the Server Manager (Agent or Full), and so generally requires the use of the Server Manager Agent to be of great use.
