The Ability to Initiate Power Shell Script Actions against Groups in the Deployment Status

I'd like the option to initiate a Power Shell Script from our SCRIPTS tab or a Right Click Tools Action against for example all machines that had a Failure with a Deployment or Status of Unknown.

    Example of a script I'd like to be able to run against a machine would be:

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop bits

    net stop cryptsvc

    #net stop pla /y

    #net stop "sms agent host"

    #net stop "security center"

    #net stop Winmgmt /y

    Start-Sleep -Seconds 10

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v AccountDomainSid /f

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v PingID /f

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientId /f

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /v SusClientIDValidation /f

    mkdir C:\EmptyFolder

    robocopy C:\EmptyFolder c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution /mir

    robocopy C:\EmptyFolder c:\windows\System32\Catroot2 /mir

    rd /s /q "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution"

    rd /s /q "c:\windows\System32\Catroot2"

    rmdir C:\EmptyFolder

    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5

    net start wuauserv

    net start bits

    net start cryptsvc

    net start Winmgmt

    net start "sms agent host"

    net start iphlpsvc

    net start "security center"

    net start pla

    wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow

    write-host "WSUS Folders Cleared"

    Remove-Item C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.pol -Force


    Invoke-GPUpdate –Computer –RandomDelayInMinutes 0 -Force

    $date = (Get-ChildItem C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.pol).CreationTime.ToString('ddMMyyyy')

    if ($date -ge '20200913') {

    Write-Host "Installed"
