The Microsoft Intune Management Extension is a system service that Microsoft Intune installs onto domain joined and managed Windows devices.
This service is designed to augment existing device management capabilities by enabling Intune to execute a PowerShell script on managed devices. IT can use these scripts for nearly any purpose, such as performing a configuration task or assessing the device’s health. Additionally, the Intune management agent verifies a managed device’s compliance state.
The Intune Management Extension performs periodic synchronizations with Intune. During these synchronizations, the extension checks for new policies or policy updates. If policies are not being applied to a managed Windows device or if Intune is unable to run a PowerShell script on such a device, then IT might need to restart the Intune Management Extension agent service on that endpoint. There are a few different methods to perform this restart.
