I am looking for a tool to manage devices on remote computers.
Do you have any suggestion ?

What kind of devices and what do you want to do with them?

Just need for troubleshooting a computer without connect directly with a remote control tool. For example disable pc system system es as network card, Bluetooth card or enable a sound controller.

I know about Desktop central from ManageEngine which can do what you are looking for, plus much more. They have changed its name to Endpoint central now. See if it helps.

Endpoint Central is certainly a great tool, but I am unsure if you can configure devices such sound controllers. Did you see this feature?
Every device driver is different and vendors usually provide their own tools to configure them, but I guess most oft tools don’t have remote control features. So if you want to change the configuration remotely after deployment, things might get tricky.

Yes Michael, it can help customize the configuration of remote computers but I am not exactly sure it will definitely work for @paolo.

It seems what Paolo needs is pretty specific. But I guess you can use Endpoint Central to remotely change the registry if the device drivers use the Registry to store their configuration. You can use Process Monitor to find the corresponding registry keys.

In my case it is required sometimes to connect remotely to disable system devices, even if we have already a remote management application but it is more complex than field support requires.

I have already used Process Monitor, it is a nice tool helpful for other scopes. Thanks.

I know Endpoint Central but I need something more light.

I though about a Powershell cmd, I need to check some ways how to enable/disable remote devices.

I agree with Michael. That will be the best lightweight solution for Free. I mean why rely on third-party solutions when things can can be done via group policy and custom scripts.

If you are able to launch a remote shell (powershell remoting, psexec,…), you may use pnputil.exe (built-in) to do what you want.
Or, you use devcon.exe, which even knows a switch -m (followed by the name of the remote machine). It fits your needs as well.
devcon can be obtained using these instructions: How to Obtain the Current Version of Device Console Utility (DevCon.exe) – TechNet Articles – United States (English) – TechNet Wiki (microsoft.com)
