Force Software Polling on remote CMS

I have 6 SIM 5.3 CMS running in my infrastructure. Each one has a VCRM. After updating all the managed servers VCA settings I wish to force each CMS to perform a Software Version Polling Task from my central CMS.

I have tried several things, I know that I can use mxtask -e "Software Version Polling" but I have not successfully gotten it to run on remote servers.

I have created a custom tool for it, but I am having a heck of a time getting SSH to run properly between the central CMS and the remote CMS's

any ideas?

Re: Force Software Polling on remote CMS

got it to work as a custom tool. It was a matter of getting OpenSSH working properly. good document here
