Have you missed “Whitby” ? Its a cool web based app for searching Config Mgr Content. It might come in handy for you so go have alook at it.
So whats this thing about Broswer Choice to start with ? Well you can read more about it here.
So if you would like to block this behaviour like most enterprise organisations want to do. There is a way to block that this updates comes into play. You simply just need to add a registry value to your machines. If the registry key is present the users will not experience the Browser Choice experience on that machine.
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareBrowserChoice
Value Name: Enabled
Value Type: DWORD
Possible Values: 1 Display browser choice update
0 Do not display browser choice update
There are different ways of adding it , choose the method that suites your environment best.If you just want to test it on your own machine simply run this command , and verify that the reg value is there.
reg add HKLMSoftwareBrowserChoice /v Enable /t REG_DWORD /d 0×00000000 /f
So what machines will this update be displayed on? It will be targeted to machines with the corresponding regional settings as European Union and is a Client OS so it wont be deployed to servers.
Is it possible to just download the prerequsites on forehand if you dont have Internet access on the server where you intend to install Configuration Manager.
Yes you can , you need to use the command without the quotes ”MEDIAPATH:SMSSETUPBINI386setup.exe /download drive:path”
Make sure the folder you download to is created before you execute the command otherwise it will not launch.
I just got the question on what rights the domain join account needs. So here it is.
First of all you need to create an account for it in this example I named min svc-sccm-domainjoin and then locate the OU where your computer accounts will reside in. And then right click on it and set the security rights.
First you need to set the following rights on the OU and with the setting Apply to: This object and all descendant objects.
- Create Computer Object
- Delete Computer Object
After that you need to add the following rights with the setting apply to: Descendant Computer objects.
- Read All Properties
- Write All Properties
- Read Permissions
- Modify Permissions
- Change Password
- Reset Password
- Validated write to DNS host name
- Validated write to service princ

With Service Pack 2 of Configuration Manager it is no longer required to provide a certificate to synchronize the Asset Intelligence Catalog with Microsoft, it is now builtin. Although when you install it it may cause some confusion.
So when you install the Asset Intelligence Sync Point role it still asks for a certificate, but its just to ignore that page and click next to install the role. Earlier it was required to have a certificate and with SP2 that has been removed.
So when you hit this page in the wizard just click next.
After you have installed the role you can look in these three log files AIUSMSI.log , AIUSSetup.log, aikbmgrlog and AIUpdateSvc.log to see that everything is working as intended. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc161940.aspx
Microsoft just released information about System Center Configuration Manager R3 you can read more about it here. Its an very exciting release.
