How to Stop an System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Client Push

If you ever do a big oops and hit the “install client” action on a full collection instead of a single machine, there’s an easy way to fix this before you bring your network down to a crawl.



Software Push 1

First, I stop the SMS Exec service, and browse to your <SCCM install dir>\inboxes\ folder.  You should see tons of records in this folder.  Just select all files (minus the top 2 folders), and delete them.  You should then have an empty folder like this – then you can restart the SMS Exec service and be good to go!
