In order to get your hands on the bits for this web service, you have some options. You can download the source code from my GitHub page, and compile the web service yourself. For installation instructions, follow what’s outlined in the README.md file in the repository. You can visit my GitHub page from the link below:


Your other option is to download a compiled version of the web service, ready for use. This version has been made available on TechNet Gallery:


I’ve published the source code for the purpose of making it available for those organisations that cannot leverage untrusted publishers, but also if you’d want to get your hands dirty and have a look at it.


If you already have ConfigMgr WebService installed in your environment, you can update it simply by replacing the ConfigMgrWebService.dll file in the bin folder of where you’ve placed the web service files. Please not though, that since version 1.1.0, 3 new Application Settings was introduced that you need to add manually, or replace the web.config file with the existing one and re-enter the values for each application setting.

    Currently RemoveADComputerFromGroup is always returning “false” for me, and I’m not seeing the group membership change.

    Quick request! Could you possible add in a “CreateADComputer” option? Giving the option to specify name, description, ou?
