Microsoft recently released a Surface Diagnostic Toolkit for Business. This toolkit was designed specifically to restore Surface devices to a full productivity stage faster. This toolkit can be used with Surface Pro 3 Devices and newer models.

IT admins can run SDT in standard helpdesk scenarios, guiding users through interactive diagnostic hardware tests, software repairs and firmware updates, which — in many cases – can restore Surface devices to full health. The toolkit will run several tests to see if there are any hardware issues, run reports, and repair.

What makes this tool really nice is the ability to Target and Deploy specific fixes to devices. You can make the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit available via self-service install options across your organization. Lastly the toolkit as Command-line support allowing you to directly troubleshoot devices remotely from the command prompt without user interaction, leveraging management tools and resources like SCCM (Configuration Manager).
