Client ping in Configuration Manager 2007 R2 client status reporting performs a number of checks to determine the status of client computers on your network. In addition to issuing a standard ping command to determine network connectivity, client ping also checks the state of the Configuration Manager 2007 client service and the BITS service. Results from client ping are stored in the Configuration Manager 2007 site database and can be viewed using the reports supplied with client status reporting. The following results can be returned by client ping:
